The BETTER THAN U AND U KNOW IT of ROM is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Donald Trump and Kanye West with an iron fist, and notable for its compulsory military service, vat-grown people, and enforced nudity. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 16.265 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, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order, Spirituality, and Administration also on the agenda, while Welfare and Environment are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Washington DC. The average income tax rate is 95.2%.
The frighteningly efficient ROMian economy, worth a remarkable 4,673 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 287,346 Trump Steaks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.1 times as much as the poorest.
Warfare increasingly resembles a video game, kids feel more beat up than ever after a hard day at school, the military's primary weapons are fear, surprise, ruthless efficiency, and a fanatical devotion to Followers of Trump, and one lone government employee can be seen hunting for the elusive stray white dog. 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.
