The Free Land of Imperial Polk County is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by The Emperor Under the I-4 Overpass with an iron fist, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, deadly medical pandemics, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 10.836 billion Polkers 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 tiny, corrupt, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Industry, although Law & Order, Healthcare, and Defense are also considered important, while Spirituality and Environment aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bartow. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 4.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Polkian economy, worth a remarkable 1,482 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 136,792 bucks, with the richest citizens earning 9.4 times as much as the poorest.

Gigantic new prisons are springing up all over the nation, babysitters are a thing of the past, the Super-Spud Cinematic Universe is breaking box office records, and public incontinence is a growing problem amongst the nation's women. 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 3,476th in the world and 1st in Florida for Largest Timber Woodchipping Industry, scoring 10,870.61 on the Tasmanian Pulp Environmental Export Index.
