The Prussian Empire of Hurricania Imperium is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Emperor Hurricane Harvey with an iron fist, and remarkable for its compulsory military service, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 6.238 billion Hurricanes are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The tiny, corrupt, pro-business, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Industry is also considered important, while Environment and Social Policy receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hurricania Konigsberg. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 2.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Hurricanic economy, worth a remarkable 1,729 trillion Reichsmarks a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Gambling, and Retail. Average income is an amazing 277,210 Reichsmarks, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,589,606 per year while the poor average 23,292, a ratio of 68.2 to 1.

The nation has recently been attributed to the funding of terrorist organisations, Tesco was recently named as the new national treasurer, eight-year-olds can be seen lighting up in public areas, and it's best to say "yes" if the arbiter asks "what are you, a moron?". Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Hurricania Imperium's national animal is the Hurricane, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Church of Hurricanes.

Hurricania Imperium is ranked 5,509th in the world and 1st in Hurricania for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 501.95 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
