The Free Land of Imperial Polk County is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by The Emperor Under the I-4 Overpass with an even hand, and notable for its avowedly heterosexual populace, flagrant waste-dumping, and daily referendums. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 3.237 billion Polkers have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The minute, corrupt government, or what there is of one, is primarily concerned with Industry, with Education, Healthcare, and Law & Order also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Public Transport receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bartow. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 4.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Polkian economy, worth 369 trillion bucks a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Gambling, Tourism, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an impressive 114,018 bucks, with the richest citizens earning 8.9 times as much as the poorest.

Every day's an auto-de-fé day, the sun rises an hour later on border communities, trails to natural wonders are littered with trash from reality film crews, and school children asked "what is two times two?" are likely to form a symposium to discuss how different answers make them feel. Crime, especially youth-related, is pervasive, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Imperial Polk County's national animal is the bog turtle, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Imperial Polk County is ranked 167,648th in the world and 54th in Florida for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring -60.85 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
