Imperial Dispatches

Population7.983 billion

The Empire of Imperial Dispatches is a colossal, orderly nation, remarkable for its parental licensing program, national health service, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 7.983 billion Imperial Dispatchesians 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 large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Administration, and Industry. The average income tax rate is 54.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Imperial Dispatchesian economy, worth 764 trillion Sovereigns a year, is quite specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Information Technology. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 95,721 Sovereigns, with the richest citizens earning 5.1 times as much as the poorest.

Praying before a battle is a court-martial offence, the government has started a campaign to crack down on road rage and encourage alternate means of commuting, the nation has opened its arms to an influx of refugees, and saying that someone looks a bit pale can be construed as hate speech. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Imperial Dispatches's national animal is the Golden Eagle.

Imperial Dispatches is ranked 44,728th in the world and 102nd in The Land of Kings and Emperors for Largest Information Technology Sector, scoring 7,045.81 on the Fann-Boi Productivity Index.
