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 national health service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 16.281 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 government stops and the rest of society begins, but it devotes most of its attentions to Defence, with areas such as Social Equality and the Environment 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 66%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, followed by Information Technology and Uranium Mining.

It is illegal for police officers to carry out searches due to strict privacy laws, new religious sects are squashed immediately by the government, dachshunds are becoming popular in pet stores nationwide, and photographers have to apply for a license to photograph Pope-Emperor Alexander XXIII. 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 192nd in the world for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 24 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
