The Empire of Romextly is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Emperor Diego with an iron fist, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, frequent executions, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 4.644 billion Romextlyians are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The relatively small, corrupt, pro-business, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Industry, Law & Order, and Education also on the agenda, while Social Policy isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ciudad de Roma. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 39.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Romextlyian economy, worth 742 trillion Pesos a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an impressive 159,911 Pesos, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 903,555 per year while the poor average 13,896, a ratio of 65.0 to 1.

Children as young as eight can present logical proofs for the existence of the afterlife, government-funded marriage counseling is showing very limited success, single celebrities have to repeatedly prove their chastity to avoid being married off to infatuated fans, and there's a lot of smoke from the nation's "green economy". 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 201,658th in the world and 2nd in International Strategic Alliance for Most Politically Free, scoring 22 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
