The Holy Empire of The Neo-Rome is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Emperor Alexandros Carra with an iron fist, and renowned for its deadly medical pandemics, vat-grown people, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 1.991 billion Romans are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Industry and Healthcare are also considered important, while Environment and Social Policy receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rome. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 51.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Neo-Romean economy, worth 287 trillion Ρωμαϊκό δολάριοs a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 144,603 Ρωμαϊκό δολάριοs, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,014,041 per year while the poor average 7,050, a ratio of 143 to 1.

Children as young as eight can be found working in factories, curtailed social programs have left many citizens bereft of any safety net, electricity company executives pray nightly to Zeus and Thor, and not showing enough enthusiasm for mutual assured destruction is a court-martial offence. Crime is pervasive, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. The Neo-Rome's national animal is the Wolf, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Neo-Roman Catholicism.

The Neo-Rome is ranked 193,316th in the world and 40th in New Democratic Union for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 42.18 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
