The Faceless Republic of Imbarien is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Leader with an iron fist, and remarkable for its complete lack of prisons. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 5.049 billion Imbarians 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, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it is mainly concerned with Defence, although Education and Law & Order are on the agenda. 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.
Libraries are bulldozed to make way for internet cafés, inheritance tax has recently been abolished, families consisting of more than three people are forced to split up, and 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. 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.
