The Armed Republic of Romanic Imperium is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Jaguar Aquilion with an even hand, and renowned for its infamous sell-swords, complete lack of prisons, and aversion to nipples. The compassionate, cheerful, devout population of 2.753 billion Romanic Imperiumians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized, corrupt government prioritizes Defense, with Administration, Education, and Healthcare also on the agenda. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Romanic city. The average income tax rate is 91.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Romanic Imperiumian economy, worth 557 trillion Dracmas a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, broadly diversified black market in Tourism, Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 202,681 Dracmas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Anti-government political posters adorn every building like wallpaper, the military is slashing spending on conventional arms and diverting it to spending on prosthetic arms, glittering new sports stadiums adorn every city and town, and bleach is the nation's most common pesticide. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Romanic Imperium's national animal is the Jaguar, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Roman Pagism.

Romanic Imperium is ranked 303,966th in the world and 26th in Novus Lucidum for Most Avoided, scoring 0.57 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
