The Empire of 12itafroma is a very large, efficient nation, notable for its avant-garde cinema, irreverence towards religion, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 156 million 12itafromans are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The minute, well-organized government, or what there is of one, is primarily concerned with Law & Order, although Education, Healthcare, and Industry are also considered important, while Spirituality and Social Policy are ignored. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 4.4%.

The very strong 12itafroman economy, worth 12.7 trillion francs a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Gambling, and Pizza Delivery. Average income is 81,544 francs, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 331,295 per year while the poor average 13,342, a ratio of 24.8 to 1.

The streets are increasingly clogged with poverty-stricken beggars, annulments are on the rise as couples discover their ancestors were born in the same hospitals, it is illegal to brush crumbs off your clothing outdoors, and the logging industry is celebrating as tourists plaster 12itafroma with trees. Crime, especially youth-related, is a problem. 12itafroma's national animal is the elephant, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

12itafroma is ranked 36,551st in the world and 1,254th in the Pacific for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 51.96 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
