Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Faceless Republic of Imbarien is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Leader with an iron fist, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, state-planned economy, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 10.388 billion Imbarians 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 minute, corrupt government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Imbarien City. The average income tax rate is 1.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Imbarian economy, worth a remarkable 1,325 trillion Coffeebeans 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 a large, well-organized, fairly diversified black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Woodchip Exports. 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 impressive 127,619 Coffeebeans, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Politicians live in abject luxury, the nation's youth is held blameless for all crimes, angst-filled teenagers are rushing off to buy government bonds for some odd reason, and only AI know why the nation is rapidly increasing its semiconductor stockpile. Crime is almost non-existent. Imbarien's national animal is the Norn, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is a major religion.

Imbarien is ranked 5,915th in the world and 69th in 10000 Islands for Highest Drug Use, scoring 311.2 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
