The Roman Empire of Diodone is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Lord Jupiter with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, state-planned economy, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 14.765 billion Diodoneans love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Camp Jupiter. The average income tax rate is 98.7%.

The very strong Diodonean economy, worth a remarkable 1,745 trillion Denariis a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 118,200 Denariis, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Passionate nomination battles are often as intense as general elections, it takes months to get the proper permits for a child's first tricycle, political talk shows often have children as guests whenever they need commentary on world religions, and the Finance Ministry posts hourly updates on where taxpayer money is spent. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Diodone's national animal is the Lightning bolt, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Ancient Roman.

Diodone is ranked 1,234th in the world and 49th in The North Pacific for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring 4,626.75 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
