The Empire of Romextly is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Emperor Diego with an iron fist, and notable for its ubiquitous missile silos, complete lack of prisons, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 7.126 billion Romextlyians 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 medium-sized, corrupt, pro-business, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order, Industry, and Education are also considered important, while Social Policy and Welfare are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ciudad de Roma. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 49.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Romextlyian economy, worth a remarkable 1,208 trillion Pesos a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 169,528 Pesos, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 768,043 per year while the poor average 22,959, a ratio of 33.5 to 1.

Exports of live cows arrive pre-roasted, endangered bison are herded across the border to prevent them from trampling on native prairie grass, motivational posters send motorists positive vibes in high-risk areas, and adult magazines are having a sales resurgence as internet anonymity disappears. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Romextly's national animal is the Hawk, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Catholic.

Romextly is ranked 31,651st in the world and 1,242nd in Balder for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 4,928.36 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
