The Halliburton of Romanar is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Chester Anderson with an iron fist, and renowned for its frequent executions, public floggings, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 31.061 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 relatively small, corrupt, pro-business 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 34.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Romanarian economy, worth a remarkable 4,597 trillion dinars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Gambling, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 148,005 dinars, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,279,270 per year while the poor average 2,798, a ratio of 457 to 1.

Hackers post hourly updates on international summits, the annual budget is heralded by the Treasury Minister donning a fake plastic mustache and giant star-shaped glasses, the only way to escape lengthy prison terms is in a body bag, and the government is denying reports that criminals injected with experimental drugs have turned into monstrous supervillains. 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 205,038th in the world and 7,218th in Osiris for Longest Average Lifespans, with 43.8 Years.
