The Galactic Neo Roman Empire of Sperio is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Supreme Leader Octavius with an even hand, and notable for its daily referendums, pith helmet sales, and anti-smoking policies. The compassionate population of 8.449 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 government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Atlantis. The average income tax rate is 92.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Sperioan economy, worth 950 trillion Spires a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 112,459 Spires, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Elderly prisoners with severe dementia are reminded hourly that they are evil people by helpful nurse-wardens, party leaders rely on horoscopes to create "ticket balance", Eau de Trashcan has become a wildly popular perfume, and internet moderator is one of the most popular jobs among the nation's more socially awkward citizens. 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 20,714th in the world and 18th in 21st Century Rome for Most Rebellious Youth, scoring 1 on the Stark-Dean Displacement Index.
