The Breakfast food of Romelette is a colossal, cultured nation, remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, smutty television, and ritual sacrifices. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 7.12 billion Romeletteans are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Spirituality, Healthcare, and Administration. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 35.7%.

The thriving Romelettean economy, worth 493 trillion Shiny Green Things a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Gambling industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Furniture Restoration. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 69,279 Shiny Green Things, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 281,465 per year while the poor average 11,335, a ratio of 24.8 to 1.

Autopsies often involve only cursory examination, politicians are often found scavenging bins at night to supplement their income, newly-peaceful nations are forced to use assault rifles as farming tools due to a lack of funds for purchasing anything else, and Maxtopian tourists make expensive pilgrimages to Romelette City to enjoy their national art. Crime is moderate, possibly because it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many regulations. Romelette's national animal is the Spider, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Romelette is ranked 102,255th in the world and 843rd in Birb for Most Developed, scoring 56.61 on the Human Development Index.
