The Roman Imperial Federation of Pontianus is a colossal, cultured nation, renowned for its museums and concert halls, hatred of cheese, and punitive income tax rates. The democratic population of 8.564 billion Romans enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 74.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Roman economy, worth 325 trillion Lire a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Woodchip Exports and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 38,045 Lire, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Teenagers performing appendectomies on their friends has become a popular schoolyard prank, government workers are regularly taken hostage by protesters, up to 40% of voters can finally read the issues they're deciding on, and the mining industry is making inroads into environmentally sensitive areas. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Pontianus's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Pontianus is ranked 163,610th in the world and 86th in Commonwealth of Liberty for Fattest Citizens, with 9.42 Obesity Rate.
