Romanus Terrae

Population215 million


The Most Serene Republic of Romanus Terrae is a huge, efficient nation, remarkable for its museums and concert halls, compulsory military service, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 215 million Civisterrans are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The relatively small, corrupt government prioritizes Defense, with Education, Healthcare, and Industry also on the agenda, while International Aid and Social Policy receive no funds. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 13.8%.

The all-consuming Romanus Terraean economy, worth 23.5 trillion Pecunias a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Retail. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an impressive 109,203 Pecunias, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 422,295 per year while the poor average 19,377, a ratio of 21.8 to 1.

Children who can't memorize their multiplication tables are sent to the mines, homeless people can be found sleeping on streets in front of unoccupied second homes, historic buildings are being demolished to allow for road-widening in the city centre, and carrots are orange, apples are red and food waste is increasing. Crime, especially youth-related, is almost non-existent. Romanus Terrae's national animal is the Ferisleo.

Romanus Terrae is ranked 31,448th in the world and 1,009th in the South Pacific for Rudest Citizens, with 74.38 Insults Per Minute.
