The Roman Imperial Federation of Pontianus is a colossal, cultured nation, notable for its museums and concert halls, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The democratic population of 9.002 billion Romans enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Environment. The average income tax rate is 72.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Roman economy, worth 355 trillion Lire a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Trout Farming and Woodchip Exports. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 39,496 Lire, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Teenagers performing appendectomies on their friends has become a popular schoolyard prank, government workers are regularly taken hostage by protesters, up to 40% of voters can finally read the issues they're deciding on, and the mining industry is making inroads into environmentally sensitive areas. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Pontianus's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Pontianus is ranked 27,952nd in the world and 51st in Commonwealth of Liberty for Longest Average Lifespans, with 86.58 years.
