The BETTER THAN U AND U KNOW IT of ROM is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Donald Trump and Kanye West with an iron fist, and notable for its parental licensing program, sprawling nuclear power plants, and hatred of cheese. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 16.698 billion Stans 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, with Law & Order, Spirituality, and Administration also on the agenda, while Welfare and Environment aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Washington DC. The average income tax rate is 95.3%.

The frighteningly efficient ROMian economy, worth a remarkable 4,883 trillion Steaks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, quite specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, Woodchip Exports, and Gambling. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 292,488 Steaks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.0 times as much as the poorest.

The bayonet is cutting-edge technology, golden statues of Dragons line the memorial avenues of the Funerary District, children often kick Dragons for amusement, and wood-framed catapults are ready to launch diseased corpses into besieged cities. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force. ROM's national animal is the Dragon, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Followers of Trump.

ROM is ranked 2,157th in the world and 63rd in The North Pacific for Highest Economic Output, with 4,883 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
