The Most Serene Principality of Romanovskaya is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Zephyrine with a fair hand, and renowned for its closed borders, compulsory military service, and compulsory gun ownership. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless, devout population of 3.258 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, prioritizes Industry, with Education and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Administration and Welfare receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Vyborg. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Romanovan economy, worth 599 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 183,894 Imperial Rubles, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.5 times as much as the poorest.

Citizens are bleary-eyed after staying up all night with a good book (Romanovskaya has found 6 easter eggs), visiting dignitaries make excuses to leave functions early and head to the nearest pub, there is now a private sector based on doomsday devices (Romanovskaya has found 6 easter eggs), and mournful opera fans place bouquets of roses at a 3000 capacity parking lot. Crime, especially youth-related, is relatively low, 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 10,610th in the world and 4th in Geopolity for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 8,374.04 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
