Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Infinite Empire of DarthStassen is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Pope-Emperor Alexander XXIII with an iron fist, and renowned for its anti-smoking policies, unlimited-speed roads, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 22.331 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, well-organized government, or what there is of one, is effectively ruled by the Department of Defense, with Social Policy and Environment not 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 11,324 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 507,101 Credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

The Imperial Arts Council pays teenagers to sit through opera performances, armed police units patrol the roads late at night, warfare increasingly resembles a video game, and rap artists are regularly arrested for promoting extremist groups. Crime is all-pervasive, 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 151,622nd in the world and 11th in Central Eastern Europe for Most Compassionate Citizens, scoring 7.05 on the Kitten Softness Rating.
