The Kingdom of Romance and Reverie is a huge, genial nation, renowned for its parental licensing program, keen interest in outer space, and pith helmet sales. The compassionate, cynical, devout population of 530 million Romance and Reverieans are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Love. The average income tax rate is 89.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but sluggish Romance and Reveriean economy, worth 15.4 trillion Promises a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Furniture Restoration and Pizza Delivery. Average income is 29,135 Promises, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Psychiatrists bizarrely accompany Leader to meetings with foreign heads of state, tech-mad citizens think that the laser-powered bread-slicer uPhone App is the coolest thing since sliced bread, tourists from around the world come to visit the country's famous rainforests, and the government is suspected of mass disappearing dissidents both at home and abroad. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Romance and Reverie's national animal is the Wandering Spirit, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Romance and Reverie is ranked 216,069th in the world and 2nd in The Ancient Isle for Nudest, with 5.25 Cheeks Per Square Mile.
