The Virtuous Republic of Orson Welles is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Augustus with an even hand, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, infamous sell-swords, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 2.245 billion Romans enjoy some of the most opulent lifestyles in the region, unless they are unemployed or working-class, in which case they are variously starving to death or crippled by easily preventable diseases.

The tiny, corrupt, liberal, pro-business government prioritizes Defense, although Industry, Education, and Administration are also considered important, while Welfare and International Aid are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rome. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 1.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Roman economy, worth 517 trillion Gold Denariis a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an amazing 230,552 Gold Denariis, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,168,482 per year while the poor average 25,234, a ratio of 46.3 to 1.

Roman politicians are often described as having more style than substance, babies are increasingly seen as a luxury, conversion therapy coupons are a popular present for coming of age ceremonies, and crowded passenger trains are near-silent save for the soft tap of fingers on touchscreens. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Orson Welles's national animal is the Eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Cult of Reason.

Orson Welles is ranked 1,842nd in the world and 37th in the West Pacific for Fattest Citizens, with 44.49 Obesity Rate.
