Roma Sparta

Population3.084 billion

LeaderRex Basileus


The Empire of Roma Sparta is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Rex Basileus with a fair hand, and renowned for its national health service, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-working, democratic, devout population of 3.084 billion Roma Spartans enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Welfare, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Laconia. The average income tax rate is 72.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Roma Spartan economy, worth 376 trillion Drachmas a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 122,222 Drachmas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation is currently revamping its entire education system, trust-fund babies line up for places in community college, the right school tie opens more doors than the right qualification, and park rangers perform full-body searches on suspected fungus smugglers. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Roma Sparta's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Catholocism.

Roma Sparta is ranked 135,530th in the world and 13th in Clorius for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -84.01 on the Hayek Index.
