The Empire of Sicilian Imperial-Capitalist Empire is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Roger IX with an iron fist, and renowned for its teetotalling pirates, prohibition of alcohol, and otherworldly petting zoo. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 3.947 billion Sicilians 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, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Law & Order, Education, and Administration are also considered important, while Spirituality and International Aid receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Palermo. The average income tax rate is 98.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Sicilian economy, worth a remarkable 1,369 trillion Euros a year, is quite specialized and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing and Information Technology. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 346,985 Euros, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Politicians that report exaggerated crowd sizes for their speeches are dismissed for being delusional, chrome-clad space marines are such stuff that dreams are made on, coffee-addicted citizens look forward to baristas getting their name wrong at local coffee shops, and ships no longer sail as no one wants to encounter Sicilian pirates. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sicilian Imperial-Capitalist Empire's national animal is the Golden Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Roman Catholicism.

Sicilian Imperial-Capitalist Empire is ranked 48,970th in the world and 556th in Europe for Best Weather, with 116 Meters Of Sunlight.
