The Imperial State of Hydraic Empire is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Callistis Caesar with an iron fist, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, sprawling nuclear power plants, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 5.559 billion Imperial Citizens are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is dominated by the Department of Defense, although Education and Law & Order are also considered important, while Welfare isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Skaro. The average income tax rate is 69.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Imperial economy, worth a remarkable 1,484 trillion Yminis a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, broadly diversified black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Retail. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 266,964 Yminis, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

There is a heavy social stigma attached to e-cigarettes, motivational posters send motorists positive vibes in high-risk areas, couples are discouraged from marrying until they can rank their partner on a scale of one to ten, and vacationing Imperial Citizens expect to be treated as royalty. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Hydraic Empire's national animal is the Demon, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is kalonianism.

Hydraic Empire is ranked 146,345th in the world and 208th in New Western Empire for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 24.07 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
