The Empire of Roma IV is a huge, safe nation, renowned for its vat-grown people, frequent executions, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed population of 671 million Romans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Byzantium. The average income tax rate is 72.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Roman economy, worth 81.0 trillion denarii 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 a slick, highly efficient, broadly diversified black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Book Publishing. 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 impressive 120,778 denarii, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A punitive tax has been placed on harmful emissions, old folks reminisce about the last time someone was acquitted of a crime, mining safety laws are often more expensive than what's being mined, and political hopefuls must announce their intentions decades in advance to accommodate extensive background checks. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Roma IV's national animal is the eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Roma IV is ranked 23,496th in the world and 751st in The East Pacific for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 6,488.35 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
