Roma Astra

Population899 million

LeaderThe Imperial Magistrates


The Principate of Roma Astra is a huge, cultured nation, ruled by The Imperial Magistrates with an iron fist, and remarkable for its frequent executions, irreverence towards religion, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, cynical population of 899 million Romans are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The enormous, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Roma. The average income tax rate is 92.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Roman economy, worth 82.3 trillion Denarii a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is 91,499 Denarii, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government is engaging in an agricultural trade war with Maxtopia, children seem to be getting better at lying these days, foreign policy often involves bullwhips and leather, and the government spends more on chasing distant comets than on basic infrastructure. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Roma Astra's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Roma Astra is ranked 7,695th in the world and 191st in the Pacific for Nicest Citizens, with 35.51 average smiles per day.
