The Say cheese sir ur on camera of Rom is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Shotgun Lance the Slightly Brave with an iron fist, and notable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, avant-garde cinema, and lack of airports. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 11.661 billion Romians 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 enormous, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order, Administration, and Education are also considered important. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of A Walmart That is Really a FEMA Camp. The average income tax rate is 76.1%.

The powerhouse Romian economy, worth a remarkable 1,207 trillion cat foods a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, quite specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, Trout Farming, and Gambling. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 103,554 cat foods, with the richest citizens earning 5.0 times as much as the poorest.

Bereaved families are assigned a new housemate the day after the funeral, the clergy of Witnesses of Jerome remains a single-sex institution, the term "Native Romian" has been redefined as anyone with the same skin color as the majority, and failure to pay the thrice-daily homage to the divine Shotgun Lance the Slightly Brave is punishable by death. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Rom's national animal is the cat god Bastet, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Witnesses of Jerome.

Rom is ranked 146,045th in the world and 5,840th in the Rejected Realms for Largest Pizza Delivery Sector, scoring -8.74 on the Pepperoni Propulsion Productivity Index.
