The Lazy Builders of Rom Was Not Built In A Day is a colossal, orderly nation, remarkable for its ritual sacrifices, compulsory vegetarianism, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 6.809 billion Rom Was Not Built In A Dayians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."
The enormous, moralistic, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Law & Order, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 61.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The large but sluggish Rom Was Not Built In A Dayian economy, worth 145 trillion Credits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient black market in Uranium Mining, Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Book Publishing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 21,353 Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
All statues and paintings of dogs are being destroyed to avoid offending cat-lovers, the nation's faithful often say there is a higher power watching over them, high school bands practice by moonlight, and strange looking men with big red noses are found hiding behind bushes and inside dustbins. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Rom Was Not Built In A Day's national animal is the Tiger.
