The Empire of Roman Smyrna is a tiny, genial nation, notable for its burgeoning Great Eagle population. The compassionate, cynical population of 14 million Roman Smyrnans are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The large, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Law & Order, and Defense. The average income tax rate is 46.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Roman Smyrnan economy, worth 660 billion Soliduses a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Soda Sales, and Information Technology. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 47,155 Soliduses, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Invasive drug testing is now performed at elementary school sports days, the government keeps its thumb on the scales of justice, citizens sell their moldy bread as homemade penicillin, and out-of-work basketball players loom over the unemployment line. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Roman Smyrna's national animal is the Great Eagle.

Roman Smyrna is ranked 115,623rd in the world and 115th in 21st Century Rome for Highest Disposable Incomes, with 25,275.21 Standard Monetary Units.
