The Infinite Empire of DarthStassen is a gargantuan, economically powerful 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 16.158 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.

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 69%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, followed by Information Technology and Beef-Based Agriculture.

Residents of newly dried out bays live in fear of leaky dikes, the armed forces are locked in an expensive and bloody war abroad to stamp out possible terrorists, the welfare administration's new sweeping authority has forced the poor and needy to shop from pre-approved grocery lists, and criminals are thrown to the dachshunds to repay their debt to society. 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 22nd in Central Eastern Europe and 102,441st in the world for Most Godforsaken, with -6 Dawkins.
