The Imperial Capital of Walbard is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by HIRM King Carlisle I with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, deadly medical pandemics, and unlimited-speed roads. The compassionate, cheerful, devout population of 18.201 billion Walbardians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The minute government, or what there is of one, is effectively ruled by the Department of Education, with Healthcare also on the agenda, while Defense and Spirituality receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Imperial City. The average income tax rate is 1.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Walbardian economy, worth a remarkable 3,250 trillion Walbardian Viras a year, is led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Soda Sales, and Automobile Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 178,583 Walbardian Viras, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.7 times as much as the poorest.

The government is avowedly secular, artificial intelligence seeking exciting work are overcome with ennui, rag-wearing teachers are often mistaken for homeless people, and believers must practice religion behind church doors lest the government smite them with a mighty fine. Crime is totally unknown. Walbard's national animal is the Walbardian Lion, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Agnosticism.

Walbard is ranked 105,459th in the world and 3rd in Walbard for Most Authoritarian, with 0.16 Stalins.
