The Principality of Romanovskaya is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Princess Zephyrine with a fair hand, and remarkable for its deadly medical pandemics, zero percent divorce rate, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless, devout population of 4.419 billion Romanovans enjoy frequent elections, which are uniformly corrupted by big-spending corporations buying politicians who best suit their interests.

The minute, corrupt, moralistic, outspoken government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Vyborg. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Romanovan economy, worth 802 trillion Imperial Rubles a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Retail, Information Technology, and Soda Sales. Average income is an impressive 181,610 Imperial Rubles, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Princess Zephyrine is spearheading a new fashion trend of wearing swimming goggles and medieval armour, posters of politicians in sensual poses can be found on the walls of teenagers' rooms, a rash of recently-elected candidates have begun to push Bigtopia-friendly policies, and smog covers Vyborg as the populace burns record amounts of coal (Romanovskaya has found 7 easter eggs). Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. Romanovskaya's national animal is the Eurasian Brown Bear, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Eastern Orthodox Christianity.

Romanovskaya is ranked 21,121st in the world and 17th in Geopolity for Most Beautiful Environments, with 1,024.89 Pounds Of Wildlife Per Square Mile.
