The Roman Empire of Plus Nova Imperii is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Augustus VI with an iron fist, and notable for its anti-smoking policies, keen interest in outer space, and triple-decker prams. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 8.509 billion Romans are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Constantinople. The average income tax rate is 96.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Roman economy, worth a remarkable 4,506 trillion Soliduses a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Retail, and Uranium Mining. Average income is a breathtaking 529,571 Soliduses, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,603,091 per year while the poor average 136,125, a ratio of 11.8 to 1.

Mandatory spouse selection pairs elderly apparatchiki with stunningly beautiful supermodels, citizens are regularly found digging for treasure in their gardens, carpal tunnel syndrome is on the rise, and whales in captivity live in little more than glorified goldfish bowls. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Plus Nova Imperii's national animal is the Double-Headed Eagle, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Nicene Christianity.

Plus Nova Imperii is ranked 1,298th in the world and 2nd in Callista for Lowest Crime Rates, with 159.34 law-abiding acts per hour.
