The Holy Empire of Patroclus is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, notable for its keen interest in outer space, rampant corporate plagiarism, and compulsory military service. The compassionate, cynical, devout population of 16.969 billion Patroclusians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The enormous, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pherae. The average income tax rate is 78.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Patroclusian economy, worth a remarkable 1,215 trillion denarii a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Furniture Restoration, and Automobile Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 71,651 denarii, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Expensive lawyers are hired to defend citizens in court for public urination charges against their pets, the government is spending billions of taxpayer denariuss to support the Tourism industry, Red Cross demand for body bags is rising while sutures go unused, and Patroclicism has been named as Patroclus's national religion. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Patroclus's national animal is the eagle and its national religion is Patroclicism.

Patroclus is ranked 147,912th in the world and 268th in The Land of Kings and Emperors for Most Avoided, scoring 1.09 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
