The Empire of Republice is a very large, orderly nation, notable for its state-planned economy, irreverence towards religion, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 195 million Republiceans are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The medium-sized, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 38.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Republicean economy, worth 1.84 trillion Governa marks 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 black market in Tourism, Trout Farming, Basket Weaving, and Beef-Based Agriculture. 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 9,429 Governa marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Pollsters are out of a job as elections have been cancelled, the media have begun calling the government treasury "Leader's stash", single celebrities have to repeatedly prove their chastity to avoid being married off to infatuated fans, and senior citizens can usually be found doing heavy manual labour. Crime is almost non-existent, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Republice's national animal is the elephant, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Republice is ranked 157,036th in the world and 2nd in The Socialist Governa for Largest Mining Sector, scoring 328.2 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
