The Empire of Globulus States is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Alexander McQuiller with an iron fist, and remarkable for its ban on automobiles, ritual sacrifices, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 1.813 billion Globulus Statesians 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 medium-sized, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Healthcare, Welfare, and Education are also considered important. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Makilisia. The average income tax rate is 30.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Globulus Statesian economy, worth 88.0 trillion Globul Dollars a year, is led by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Woodchip Exports, and Information Technology. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 48,564 Globul Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

Foreign policy is mostly just to smile and hope for the best, economists claim no news is good news, tabloids coo over Alexander McQuiller's expected child, and 'Mountain Doobie' is widely regarded as the nation's favourite drink. Crime, especially youth-related, is almost non-existent. Globulus States's national animal is the Barking Cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Globulus States is ranked 207,279th in the world and 73rd in Niamark for Fattest Citizens, with 7.42 Obesity Rate.
