The Imperium of Romae in Perpetuum is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Gemellus Caesar with an iron fist, and remarkable for its pith helmet sales, aversion to nipples, and strictly enforced bedtime. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 5.752 billion Romans 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 medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order, Industry, and Education also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Welfare aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nova Roma. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 90.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Roman economy, worth a remarkable 2,286 trillion Denarii a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Retail. Average income is an amazing 397,438 Denarii, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,203,106 per year while the poor average 102,160, a ratio of 11.8 to 1.

It is illegal to distribute Girl Guide Cookies without an advanced food hygiene diploma, prime commercial land is being swamped with archaeological teams, families returning from international vacations are unable to get their children back into the country, and bouncers at the door of the sweet shop warn five-year-olds not to cause trouble. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Romae in Perpetuum's national animal is the Eagle, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Cultus Imperator.

Romae in Perpetuum is ranked 150,518th in the world and 35th in The Fourth Sovereign Charter for Highest Workforce Participation Rate, with 37.28 Workforce Participation Rate.
