The Romanum Legio

The Holy Roman Father of The Romanum Legio is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Imperator Vespasianvs Augustvs with an even hand, and remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, anti-smoking policies, and unlimited-speed roads. The compassionate population of 26.549 billion Legionians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The large, corrupt government prioritizes Education, although Environment, Healthcare, and Industry are also considered important, while Spirituality and International Aid aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ravenna-Romana. The average income tax rate is 70.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Legioan economy, worth a remarkable 3,114 trillion Denarii a year, is quite specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Uranium Mining, and Retail. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 117,301 Denarii, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.

You need two tenors and a coloratura contralto to sing the national anthem properly, Jennifer Government is a bestseller, tampons are used as cheap fishing bobbers, and Legionians are regularly fired for looking at MyFace during their lunch breaks. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Romanum Legio's national animal is the Shark, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Church of the Holy Shark.

The Romanum Legio is ranked 26,006th in the world and 775th in The East Pacific for Lowest Crime Rates, with 76.45 Law-abiding Acts Per Hour.
