The Infinite Empire of DarthStassen is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Pope-Emperor Alexander XXIII with an iron fist, and renowned for its complete lack of public education. Its hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 15.196 billion 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 48%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, followed by Information Technology and Beef-Based Agriculture.

The government is reining in public spending, pristine wilderness has been trashed in the quest for cheaper oil, Max Barry is this year's Miss DarthStassen, and the government's only official statement on the burning down of Königsberg was that 'they shouldn't have been so careless'. 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 204th in the world for Largest Timber Woodchipping Industry, scoring 23 on the Tasmanian Pulp Environmental Export Index.
