The Republic of Rom 3 is a massive, orderly nation, notable for its rum-swilling pirates, public floggings, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 1.422 billion Rom 3ians 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 juggles the competing demands of Defense, Administration, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 51.4%.

The sizeable but inefficient Rom 3ian economy, worth 61.2 trillion bitcoins a year, is quite specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Gambling, Uranium Mining, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 43,006 bitcoins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.8 times as much as the poorest.

Citizens must pay to enjoy Rom 3's pristine beaches, weighted heels are added to military boots to ensure diminutive celebrities meet minimum requirements, a suspicious number of male students have joined the Ladies' Wrestling League, and oil rigs in winter are heated by contained oil slick fires. Crime, especially youth-related, is almost non-existent, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Rom 3's national animal is the kangaroo, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Rom 3 is ranked 76,713th in the world and 1st in Imperial Coalition of Nations for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 1,336.15 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
