The Holy Empire of Romau is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Alexandra with an iron fist, and remarkable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, avant-garde cinema, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 1.981 billion rouauians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Administration, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tzoúlian Síti. The average income tax rate is 81.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient rouauian economy, worth 235 trillion Cashes a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 118,987 Cashes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

Foreign lack of enthusiasm for rouauian nose-flute disco metal is seen as a reasonable casus belli, maximum security fish farms leave caged salmon pining for the fjords, babysitters are a thing of the past, and veterans in wheelchairs are left waist-deep in rice paddies to gather grain. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Romau's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Cult of Julian.

Romau is ranked 212,027th in the world and 180th in 21st Century Rome for Least Corrupt Governments, with 74.85 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
