The Empire of Cimalani is a very large, cultured nation, renowned for its irreverence towards religion, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The cynical population of 192 million Cimalanians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 66.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Cimalanian economy, worth 1.79 trillion Euros a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Tourism, and Cheese Exports. Average income is 9,312 Euros, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

There's sophisticated talk of revolution within the ever-expanding mining colonies, peace talks occasionally rack up a higher body count than the wars they seek to stop, theatre may or may not be changing for the better but it is being changed for good, and children who express a belief in Santa are labelled 'delusional cultists'. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Cimalani's national animal is the Starpanther, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Cimalani is ranked 176,709th in the world and 8,785th in The North Pacific for Least Corrupt Governments, with 90.89 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
