The Robotic Operating Mechanisms of ROM is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Shotgun Marcus the 100% Robot with an iron fist, and notable for its fear of technology, enslaved workforce, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 13.275 billion robots 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 prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order, Spirituality, and Administration are also considered important, while Welfare and Environment are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of A Walmart That is Really a Robot Factory. The average income tax rate is 92.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient ROMian economy, worth a remarkable 3,302 trillion robodollars 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 248,739 robodollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Children often kick robodogs for amusement, fifteen-year-olds cannot walk younger siblings to school without a professional Childcare and Education Certificate, a National Academy regulates grammar and usage, and the nation grinds to a halt for afternoon tea. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. ROM's national animal is the robodog, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Believers in Robots.
