The Grand Imperium of Feradia is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Emperor Ferdinandus I with an iron fist, and notable for its parental licensing program, anti-smoking policies, and infamous sell-swords. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 8.986 billion Feradians 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 large, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Education, Law & Order, and Administration also on the agenda, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sturmstadt. The average income tax rate is 92.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Feradian economy, worth a remarkable 1,623 trillion imperial feradis a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 180,717 imperial feradis, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Diplomatic missions typically end with a flurry of childish insults, accusations and phlegm, the nation's laws on image rights are amongst the strictest in the world, military officers are given medals for disobeying orders, and fake designer clothes are shredded and burnt while many in the world don't have a shirt on their back. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Feradia's national animal is the Tonitrosaurus imperator, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Feradian protestantism.

Feradia is ranked 200,827th in the world and 10,220th in The North Pacific for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring -4.24 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
