The Breakfast food of Romelette is a massive, orderly nation, notable for its frequent executions, prohibition of alcohol, and compulsory military service. The cynical, devout population of 4.467 billion Romeletteans are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The large, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Spirituality, although Administration, Defense, and Social Policy are also considered important, while International Aid and Industry receive no funds. The average income tax rate is 35.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The large but inefficient Romelettean economy, worth 154 trillion Shiny Green Things a year, is led by the Furniture Restoration industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Arms Manufacturing, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 34,523 Shiny Green Things, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

Government officials frequently cut taxes as a distraction from antics with their secretaries, incidents involving lethal string attacks have gone way up, the nation's school children are fluent in Klingon but lack basic mathematical skills, and government policies change at the drop of a rabbit. Crime is moderate, possibly because it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many regulations. Romelette's national animal is the Spider, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Romelette is ranked 123,025th in the world and 15th in Kezia for Most Stationary, with 17.8596413476 Days.
