The Infinite Empire of DarthStassen is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Pope-Emperor Alexander XXIII with an iron fist, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 16.51 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 68%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, followed by Information Technology and Beef-Based Agriculture.

A crusade against barbaric religious practices has begun, children as young as twelve are conscripted into the armed forces, graffiti artists spend lengthy periods of time in jail, and groups of three or more trees are cut down in the name of 'child safety'. 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 270th in the world for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring 20 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
