Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Infinite Empire of DarthStassen is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Pope-Emperor Alexander XXIII with an iron fist, and notable for its compulsory military service, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and state-planned economy. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 19.974 billion Imperials are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The tiny, corrupt, well-organized government is dominated by the Department of Defense, with Law & Order also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Environment are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Königsberg. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Imperial economy, worth an astonishing 10,565 trillion Credits 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 a large, well-organized, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Automobile Manufacturing. 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 a breathtaking 528,950 Credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

Elevator music has been replaced by thrash metal played at maximum volume, belligerent citizens shoot at passing clouds for 'violating their airspace', parents must choose their children's names from a government-mandated master list, and the military has forsaken terrestrial warfare. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. DarthStassen's national animal is the dachshund, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Imperial Catholicism.

DarthStassen is ranked 1,156th in the world and 2nd in Central Eastern Europe for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 10,735.01 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
