The Infinite Empire of DarthStassen is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Pope-Emperor Alexander XXIII with an iron fist, and notable for its parental licensing program, free-roaming dinosaurs, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 23.44 billion Imperials are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The minute, corrupt government, or what there is of one, is effectively ruled by the Department of Defense, although Law & Order and Industry are also considered important, while Social Policy and Environment aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Königsberg. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Imperial economy, worth an astonishing 12,245 trillion Credits a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Gambling. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is a breathtaking 522,404 Credits, with the richest citizens earning 5.4 times as much as the poorest.

Business leaders are mailing Pope-Emperor Alexander XXIII forged birth certificates in a bid to win their rivals as serfs, community-designed sword prostheses are becoming dangerously common, a punitive tax has been placed on harmful emissions, and high-tech infantry rifles automatically reload when the soldier shoots outside the screen of their helmet HUD. Crime is a major problem, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. DarthStassen's national animal is the dachshund, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Imperial Catholicism.

DarthStassen is ranked 968th in the world and 1st in Central Eastern Europe for Smartest Citizens, with 197.73 Quips Per Hour.
