The Res Publica Romana of Desmosthenes and Burke is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Gaius Lucanus Aurelius with a fair hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, daily referendums, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 7.585 billion Burkeans enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lutetia. The average income tax rate is 29.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Burkean economy, worth 775 trillion Denarii a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 102,192 Denarii, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

The new one Denarius coin also makes a handy throwing-star, Little League matches are often attended by riot police with water cannon... just in case, Desmosthenes and Burke Barrier Island residents anxiously await their 'Bridge to Somewhere', and the death penalty has been reintroduced. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Desmosthenes and Burke's national animal is the Grey Wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Religio Romanum.

Desmosthenes and Burke is ranked 227,867th in the world and 5,321st in the West Pacific for Best Weather, with 58 Meters Of Sunlight.
