The Second Atheistic Empire of Imperial Royal Union is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Emperor Thales XIII with an even hand, and remarkable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, sprawling nuclear power plants, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 15.776 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. The average income tax rate is 41.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Imperialean economy, worth a remarkable 2,956 trillion Imperial Royale Elites a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Retail, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an impressive 187,432 Imperial Royale Elites, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.9 times as much as the poorest.

Eau de Trashcan has become a wildly popular perfume, a death threat has replaced 'hello' as an official greeting in the nation, historical commemorations regularly devolve into militaristic jingoism, and farting etiquette is taught in schools. 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 74,777th in the world and 4th in The Crown Federation of Recon for Highest Workforce Participation Rate, with 69.22 Workforce Participation Rate.
