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 museums and concert halls, fear of technology, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 3.579 billion Polkers are free to succeed or fail in life on their own merits; the successful tend to enjoy an opulent (but moralistic) lifestyle, while the failures can be seen crowding out most jails.

The tiny, corrupt government is primarily concerned with Industry, although Defense, Law & Order, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Spirituality and Public Transport are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bartow. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 4.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Polkian economy, worth 441 trillion bucks a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Gambling, Woodchip Exports, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an impressive 123,219 bucks, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 423,461 per year while the poor average 26,292, a ratio of 16.1 to 1.

Therapists can always squeeze in another house-call, future forecasters fearfully discuss grey goo and human obsolescence, blind students are at a disadvantage now that test papers printed in braille have been discontinued, and all-natural foods are becoming a major fad. 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 76,358th in the world and 21st in Florida for Most Advanced Defense Forces, scoring 1,635.11 on the Total War Preparedness Rating.
