The Toxic Garbage Island of Impenyer is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by The Emperor with an iron fist, and notable for its parental licensing program, prohibition of alcohol, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 18.624 billion Impenyerians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The minute, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dromund Kaas. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Impenyerian economy, worth a remarkable 5,975 trillion Credits a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Information Technology, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Average income is an amazing 320,823 Credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

A National Academy regulates grammar and usage, motorists must pay to enter inner-cities during peak hours, citizens are encouraged to report friends, family members or co-workers who seem depressed to the government for "counselling", and government police forces protect public schools from the threat of protest. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. Impenyer's national animal is the Bantha, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Sith.

Impenyer is ranked 929th in The North Pacific and 26,839th in the world for Largest Public Transport Department, scoring 28 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
