The Holy Empire of Vasilinople is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Emperor Andronikos V with an iron fist, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, compulsory military service, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, cheerful, devout population of 12.786 billion Romans are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The relatively small, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Vasilinople. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 5.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Roman economy, worth a remarkable 2,978 trillion Hyperpyrons a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Arms Manufacturing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an amazing 232,970 Hyperpyrons, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 811,757 per year while the poor average 48,680, a ratio of 16.7 to 1.

The government is a proud sponsor of the National Gaming Association, the new 'Who Wants To Be A Politician' election debate auditions are more popular than the debates themselves, the only thing that can pin down a "superhero" is red tape, and trails to natural wonders are littered with trash from reality film crews. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Vasilinople's national animal is the Eastern Imperial Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Eastern Orthodoxy.

Vasilinople is ranked 27,488th in the world and 24th in The Alliance of Dictators for Most Pro-Market, scoring 69 on the Rand Index.
