The Reformed Imperium of Free Empire of the Low Isles is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Emperor Elect Souhta with an iron fist, and notable for its pith helmet sales, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 11.925 billion Low Islesians 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 medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Shiikan. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 66.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Low Islesian economy, worth a remarkable 2,913 trillion tilvis a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 244,355 tilvis, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,433,982 per year while the poor average 19,451, a ratio of 73.7 to 1.

The police think a properly conducted criminal investigation is a real pain, '.lib' or '.con' domains indicate whether Low Islesian websites are meant for liberals or conservatives, light entertainment isn't dead, and extraordinary rendition is nothing out of the ordinary. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Free Empire of the Low Isles's national animal is the Itinese Islesian Squid, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is The Church of the True Emperor.

Free Empire of the Low Isles is ranked 110,646th in the world and 8th in Winterfell for Most Extreme, scoring 18.26 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
