The Halliburton of Romanar is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Chester Anderson with an iron fist, and remarkable for its daily referendums, keen interest in outer space, and triple-decker prams. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 28.515 billion Romanarians are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, pro-business, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Delta City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 37.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Romanarian economy, worth a remarkable 4,203 trillion dinars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Gambling, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 147,401 dinars, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 745,176 per year while the poor average 16,214, a ratio of 46.0 to 1.

A Balder Tourist Association survey has rated Romanar #1 for number twos, photographs that show ladies' ankles are considered risqué, the nation is loathed abroad for dumping all of its waste in international waters, and shopkeepers use microscopes to verify the authenticity of banknotes. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Romanar's national animal is the bull moose, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Church of Romanar.

Romanar is ranked 167,569th in the world and 5,226th in Balder for Most Pacifist, with 5.28 Cheeks Turned Per Day.
