The Empire of Romana Imperium de Italia is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Imperator Seiabius Artorii with a fair hand, and notable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, otherworldly petting zoo, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.717 billion Romana Imperium de Italians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Roma. The average income tax rate is 81.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Romana Imperium de Italian economy, worth 278 trillion Imperial Dollars a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 102,564 Imperial Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Billions of Imperial Dollars are being blown on orbital weapons development, the government only invests in infrastructure after a natural disaster, the fattest folk in Romana Imperium de Italia look to be the happiest ones, and passionate nomination battles are often as intense as general elections. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Romana Imperium de Italia's national animal is the Wedge-Tailed Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Romanic-Greco Paganism.

Romana Imperium de Italia is ranked 11,269th in the world and 209th in Europe for Most Developed, scoring 89.46 on the Human Development Index.
