The Caerokian Empire of Berukio Imperiuk is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Emperor Thalik Beez IX with an iron fist, and remarkable for its compulsory military service, frequent executions, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 4.873 billion Berukions 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 large government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Merum. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 46.5%.

The thriving Berukion economy, worth 322 trillion Credits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient black market in Book Publishing, Furniture Restoration, Arms Manufacturing, and Tourism. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 66,212 Credits, with the richest citizens earning 7.3 times as much as the poorest.

Hundreds of subterranean tunnels are being built as part of "Project Morlock", frequent fliers are obliged to submit to invasive security procedures by government security, lines of trenches demarcate the nation's borders, and whales in captivity live in little more than glorified goldfish bowls. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Berukio Imperiuk's national animal is the Huyck Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Relaism.

Berukio Imperiuk is ranked 10,001st in the world and 6th in Barbaria for Highest Workforce Participation Rate, with 78.02 Workforce Participation Rate.
