The Faceless Republic of Imbarien is a massive, economically powerful nation, ruled by Leader with an iron fist, and remarkable for its absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 4.343 billion Imbarienians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt government stops and the rest of society begins, but it is mainly concerned with Defence, although Education and Law & Order are secondary priorities. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Imbarien City. The average income tax rate is 99%. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Information Technology industry.

The mob and the police have recently had numerous clashes in the back alleys of Imbarien's cities due to the government's steadfast anti-casino stance, houses and businesses are bulldozed to make way for ever-expanding cemeteries, children as young as six shock their parents by coming out of the closet, and the nation's diplomatic missives are now delivered via sniper rifle. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Imbarien's national animal is the Norn, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, its national religion is a major religion, and its currency is the Coffeebean.

Imbarien is ranked 949th in 10000 Islands and 110,593rd in the world for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -21 on the Hayek Index.
