The Empire of Imperial and Federal Union of States is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Karl Franz II von Habsburg with an iron fist, and remarkable for its rum-swilling pirates, frequent executions, and otherworldly petting zoo. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 12.047 billion Imperial and Federal Union of Statesians are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The relatively small, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Wien. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 20.3%.

The all-consuming Imperial and Federal Union of Statesian economy, worth 904 trillion Kroners a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Woodchip Exports, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is 75,050 Kroners, with the richest citizens earning 9.7 times as much as the poorest.

The government has enacted freedom of information, employers may fire workers without giving any reason, more and more students are taking up a career in medicine, and eight year-olds can be seen lighting up in public areas. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force. Imperial and Federal Union of States's national animal is the Eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Terran Catholicism.

Imperial and Federal Union of States is ranked 15,491st in the world and 26th in The Local Cluster for Highest Economic Output, with 904 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
