The Neo Roman Empire of Sperio is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Supreme Leader Octavius with an even hand, and renowned for its pith helmet sales, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate population of 6.333 billion Sperioans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Atlantis. The average income tax rate is 91.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Sperioan economy, worth 703 trillion Spires a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Information Technology. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 111,020 Spires, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation's atlases tend to go out of date every few weeks, a faint smell of body odour can be detected at several miles distance from the National Science Park, only adults may purchase violent video games, and people say chess victor Supreme Leader Octavius can kill you with mind-bullets. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sperio's national animal is the Falcon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Nukeism.

Sperio is ranked 16,276th in the world and 26th in 21st Century Rome for Smartest Citizens, with 69.08 Quips Per Hour.
