The BETTER THAN U AND U KNOW IT of ROM is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Donald Trump and Kanye West with an iron fist, and renowned for its fear of technology, pith helmet sales, and enslaved workforce. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 19.422 billion Stans 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 large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Law & Order, Spirituality, and Administration also on the agenda, while Welfare and Education aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Washington DC. The average income tax rate is 96.0%.

The frighteningly efficient ROMian economy, worth a remarkable 6,219 trillion Steaks 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, Woodchip Exports, 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 amazing 320,230 Steaks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

Fast-food chefs regularly win Health Innovation Awards for spitting on burgers, epidemiologists happily announce that the reported incidence of depression is close to zero percent, the government spends twice as much reclaiming lost settlements from the sea as it could've on coastal defences, and the most popular stadium acts are one-off performances. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force. ROM's national animal is the Dragon, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Followers of Trump.

ROM is ranked 2,645th in the world and 96th in the Rejected Realms for Highest Poor Incomes, with 183,924.25 Standard Monetary Units.
