LeaderGod Emperor Vlad


The Galactic Empire of Imperial Akatsuki is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by God Emperor Vlad with an iron fist, and renowned for its parental licensing program, complete lack of prisons, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 3.802 billion Imps 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 medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Education, Law & Order, and Administration also on the agenda, while Spirituality and International Aid aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Byss. The average income tax rate is 97.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Imperial economy, worth 980 trillion Succs 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 Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, 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 amazing 257,898 Succs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.8 times as much as the poorest.

Deceased politicians' MyFace profiles are unanimously pro-incumbent, nudity is frowned upon, graverobbers claim they're acting within the interest of 'scientific preservation', and oil rigs in winter are heated by contained oil slick fires. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Imperial Akatsuki's national animal is the Hollow, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Imperial Akatsuki is ranked 44,523rd in the world and 1,739th in The East Pacific for Largest Pizza Delivery Sector, scoring 2,631.18 on the Pepperoni Propulsion Productivity Index.
