The Royal Empire of Imperial States America is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Emperor Tex Cotton with an iron fist, and notable for its anti-smoking policies, state-planned economy, and complete lack of public education. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 12.898 billion Imperialists are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Spirituality, Law & Order, and Industry are also considered important, while Welfare and Education receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Richmond. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 90.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Imperial States American economy, worth a remarkable 3,022 trillion Imperial Credits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, quite specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Furniture Restoration, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 234,328 Imperial Credits, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 791,747 per year while the poor average 51,295, a ratio of 15.4 to 1.

Drowning sailors are hung out to dry, thousands of children die every day from easily curable illnesses, a recent "genocide prevention" campaign includes murdering children based on their DNA, and the nation's healthcare system has taken a "survival of the fittest" approach in administering care. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force. Imperial States America's national animal is the Mini elephant, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Church of ISA.

Imperial States America is ranked 244,150th in the world and 5th in United Imperial Union for Most Secular, with 0.73 Atheism Rate.
