The Holy Empire of Galaxy is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by God-Emperor Alexios with an iron fist, and notable for its digital currency, public floggings, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 1.808 billion Humans 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 relatively small, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Education, Law & Order, and Industry also on the agenda, while International Aid and Environment receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Holy Terra. The average income tax rate is 33.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Imperial Citizen economy, worth 216 trillion Imperial Credits a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Retail, Arms Manufacturing, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an impressive 119,688 Imperial Credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Strange lights seen in the sky are officially regarded as weather balloons or hoaxes and nothing else, citizens rise at daybreak every day for mandatory exercise, drug distribution is tightly controlled by the government, and politicians stage photo ops featuring barely functional fighter jets. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Galaxy's national animal is the Aquila, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Imperial Church.

Galaxy is ranked 148,296th in the world and 5,991st in the West Pacific for Most Primitive, scoring -289.15 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
