The Dank Meme of Sicilian Imperial-Capitalist Empire is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Roger IX with an iron fist, and remarkable for its compulsory military service, soft-spoken computers, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 3.726 billion Sicilians 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 large, corrupt, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Law & Order, Education, and Administration also on the agenda, while Spirituality and International Aid aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Palermo. The average income tax rate is 97.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Sicilian economy, worth a remarkable 1,218 trillion Euros 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 an enormous, deeply entrenched, quite specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing and Information Technology. 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 327,100 Euros, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Children are often punished for the sins of the fathers, unwary hikers climbing the bluffs of Mount Palermo make great practice for foreign snipers, Red Cross demand for body bags is rising while sutures go unused, and space has been brought down to earth with constellations of cancer cases across Sicilian Imperial-Capitalist Empire. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sicilian Imperial-Capitalist Empire's national animal is the Golden Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Roman Catholicism.

Sicilian Imperial-Capitalist Empire is ranked 16,458th in the world and 281st in Europe for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with 1,462.26 Tourists Per Hour.
