The BETTER THAN U AND U KNOW IT of ROM is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Donald Trump and Kanye West with an iron fist, and renowned for its deadly medical pandemics, frequent executions, and avant-garde cinema. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 16.642 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 prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order, Spirituality, and Administration also on the agenda, while Welfare is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Washington DC. The average income tax rate is 95.2%.

The frighteningly efficient ROMian economy, worth a remarkable 4,794 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 288,120 Steaks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.0 times as much as the poorest.

Card collectors duel to the death, the nation threatens sanctions on islands only visible at low tide, ambitious "businessmen" use their children to sell and advertise their products, and Rupert Bear is considered to be the most risqué TV programme in ROM. 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 6,128th in the world and 321st in The North Pacific for Rudest Citizens, with 134.82 Insults Per Minute.
