The Second Atheistic Empire of Imperial Royal Union is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Emperor Thales XIII with an even hand, and renowned for its strictly enforced bedtime, ubiquitous missile silos, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 16.339 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 Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Port Imperial. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 47.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Imperialean economy, worth a remarkable 3,373 trillion Imperial Royale Elites a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an amazing 206,469 Imperial Royale Elites, with the richest citizens earning 9.1 times as much as the poorest.

Beating enemies to death with a baseball bat is legal if done within nine innings, the comic book series 'Emperor Thales XIII and the Villainous Corporate Cronies' is a best-seller, anything is permissible when wearing latex gloves, and agricultural science is the most competitive subject at universities. 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 42,812th in the world and 2nd in The Crown Federation of Recon for Most Pro-Market, scoring 59.78 on the Rand Index.
