The Infinite Empire of DarthStassen is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Pope-Emperor Alexander XXIII with an even hand, and notable for its deadly medical pandemics, sprawling nuclear power plants, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 16.912 billion Imperials are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The tiny, corrupt government is dominated by the Department of Defense, although Law & Order is also considered important, while Environment and Social Policy receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Königsberg. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Imperial economy, worth a remarkable 7,702 trillion Credits a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is an amazing 455,467 Credits, with the richest citizens earning 9.7 times as much as the poorest.

Pinkerton agents are called in to forcibly break up white collar strikes, DarthStassen Barrier Island residents anxiously await their 'Bridge to Somewhere', the nation's new foreign policy of 'very disproportionate retribution' has its neighbors on edge, and the psych wards are overflowing with transsexuals. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. DarthStassen's national animal is the dachshund, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Imperial Catholicism.

DarthStassen is ranked 1st in Central Eastern Europe and 87th in the world for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 714 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
