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 remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, infamous sell-swords, and ritual sacrifices. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 16.229 billion Trump 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, although Law & Order, Spirituality, and Administration are also considered important, 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 95.1%.

The frighteningly efficient ROMian economy, worth a remarkable 4,643 trillion Trump 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 286,117 Trump Steaks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.2 times as much as the poorest.

Cotton candy made from genuine cotton cellulose doesn't quite satisfy, police pull people off the street for even mentioning the word plane, slavers view "what did your last slave die of" as a request for a demonstration, and citizens who become homeless are immediately executed. 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 330th in the world and 11th in The North Pacific for Largest Black Market, with 7,214 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
