The Infinite Empire of DarthStassen is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, ruled by Pope-Emperor Alexander XXIII with an iron fist, and remarkable for its punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 16.668 billion Imperials are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt, pro-business government stops and the rest of society begins, but it devotes most of its attentions to Defence, with areas such as the Environment and Social Equality receiving almost no funds by comparison. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Königsberg. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 70%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, followed by Information Technology and Beef-Based Agriculture.

Military spending is on the increase, construction of the Really Big Hadron Collider is underway, organ donation rates are among the lowest in the region, and torture is illegal. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. DarthStassen's national animal is the dachshund, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, its national religion is Imperial Catholicism, and its currency is the Credit.

DarthStassen is ranked 1st in Central Eastern Europe and 141st in the world for Largest Manufacturing Sector, scoring 45 on the Gooback-Jerbs Productivity Index.
