The Faceless Republic of Imbarien is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Leader with an iron fist, and remarkable for its punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 4.854 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, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it concentrates mainly on 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.

Newborns are being raised as mindless killing machines, the people are famous throughout the region for their bleached-white teeth, airport security is provided by private companies, and bicyclists are banned from major roads. 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 974th in 10000 Islands and 111,377th in the world for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -22 on the Hayek Index.
