The Black Kingdom States of Illustratus is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Father and his Court of Lords with an iron fist, and remarkable for its compulsory vegetarianism. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 3.647 billion, 561 million of whom are zombies, Illustratusians 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 juggles the competing demands of Defence, Law & Order, and Education. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Draconis City. The average income tax rate is 43%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, followed by Soda Sales and Pizza Delivery.

The nation's favourite colour is green (Illustratus has found 1 easter egg), businesses that prove successful are immediately broken up, postmen have been arrested in job lots for selling junk mail as home insulation, and almost all of Illustratus's water is piped into the country from abroad for exorbitant prices. Crime is moderate, probably because of the country's utter lack of prisons. Illustratus's national animal is the Anitolian Shepard, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, its national religion is Obedience, and its currency is the Anima.

Illustratus is ranked 2,165th in Osiris and 62,235th in the world for Most Dedicated Public Healthcare, scoring 16 on the Theresa-Nightingale Rating.
