The Empire of Sicilian Imperial-Capitalist Empire is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Roger IX with an iron fist, and renowned for its closed borders, teetotalling pirates, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 3.966 billion Sicilians 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 dominated by the Department of Defense, although Law & Order, Education, and Administration are also considered important, while Spirituality and International Aid receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Palermo. The average income tax rate is 98.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Sicilian economy, worth a remarkable 1,378 trillion Euros a year, is quite specialized and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing and Information Technology. Average income is an amazing 347,470 Euros, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Theft is considered to be okay if the crime happened a long time ago, criminals are thrown to the Golden Eagles to repay their debt to society, the world still seems flat to some people in space, and citizens live in superstitious fear of the mysterious glowing clouds that float over Sicilian Imperial-Capitalist Empire. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sicilian Imperial-Capitalist Empire's national animal is the Golden Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Roman Catholicism.

Sicilian Imperial-Capitalist Empire is ranked 6,551st in the world and 54th in Europe for Most Politically Apathetic Citizens, with 59.52 Whatever.
