The Holy Empire of Rommanda is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Archduke Blaster Master Don Reivaj III with an iron fist, and renowned for its avant-garde cinema, anti-smoking policies, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 15.777 billion Rommandans 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, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is dominated by the Department of Defense, with Industry, Education, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while International Aid receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Imperial Greater Parusia. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Rommandan economy, worth a remarkable 9,454 trillion Kilos de Vergas a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched black market in Arms Manufacturing and Information Technology. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is a breathtaking 599,275 Kilos de Vergas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

The army's use of chemical weapons leaves a bad taste in the mouth, billions of Kilos de Vergas are being blown on orbital weapons development, the nation is under martial law, and locally produced computer games are being released faster than gamers can play them. 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. Rommanda's national animal is the Vergasaurio, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Vale Verguismo.

Rommanda is ranked 813th in the world and 31st in Lazarus for Most Beautiful Environments, with 4,469.45 Pounds Of Wildlife Per Square Mile.
