The Second Atheistic Empire of Imperial Royal Union is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Emperor Thales XIII with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, daily referendums, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 15.591 billion Imperialeans 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 medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Industry, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Port Imperial. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 38.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Imperialean economy, worth a remarkable 2,781 trillion Imperial Royale Elites a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 178,391 Imperial Royale Elites, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 585,975 per year while the poor average 40,727, a ratio of 14.4 to 1.

Victims of crime are viewed as less trustworthy than politicians, textbooks are exactly twice as heavy as they used to be, Brancaland has gifted over nine thousand putrid moose carcasses to Imperial Royal Union as a reminder of their "special relationship", and whipping posts and lashes have been transferred to the Historical Museum of Imperialean Embarrassments. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Imperial Royal Union's national animal is the Imperialean Albatross, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Imperial Royal Union is ranked 159,951st in the world and 20th in The Crown Federation of Recon for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring -36.06 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
