The Sentinel Servant of Imperial Cross is a gargantuan, orderly nation, renowned for its public floggings, compulsory military service, and state-planned economy. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 15.051 billion Imperial Crossians 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 large, pro-business, well-organized government prioritizes Law & Order, with Defense, Industry, and International Aid also on the agenda. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 38.6%.

The strong Imperial Crossian economy, worth 777 trillion Rialtos 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 slick, highly efficient, fairly diversified black market in Gambling, Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Uranium Mining. 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 51,646 Rialtos, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 272,919 per year while the poor average 5,190, a ratio of 52.6 to 1.

Children are brainwashed at a young age to accept "Love and peace!" as a way of life, a National Academy regulates grammar and usage, reporters often lose their jobs over fact-checking errors, and the richest citizens live in sheltered private citadels. Crime is moderate. Imperial Cross's national animal is the Black Shrike, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities, and its national religion is Hope.

Imperial Cross is ranked 139,250th in the world and 213th in Spiritus for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 38.8 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
