The Holy Empire of Rommanda is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Archduke Und Blaster Master Reivaj III with an iron fist, and renowned for its state-planned economy, avowedly heterosexual populace, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 17.698 billion Rommandans are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is effectively ruled by the Department of Defense, with Industry and Education also on the agenda, while International Aid is ignored. 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 an astonishing 11,403 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, quite specialized 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 644,343 Kilos de Vergas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

Colonial subjects have Rommandan culture shoved down their throats, military instructors tire of being asked for another bedtime story by seven-year-old conscripts, midnight raids drag couples from their homes in the name of decency, and foreign converts are illuminated by both missionaries and helicopter searchlights. 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 47,221st in the world and 1,732nd in Lazarus for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 3,905.02 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
