The United Socialist Island of Imperial Terra Australis is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Pisces Homonis with an iron fist, and remarkable for its ban on automobiles, free-roaming dinosaurs, and otherworldly petting zoo. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 1.594 billion Imperial Terra Australisians 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 large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Impenetrabilia PortŠ. The average income tax rate is 67.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Imperial Terra Australisian economy, worth 168 trillion Imperatoria Marks 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 a large, well-organized black market in Trout Farming, Tourism, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. 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 impressive 106,020 Imperatoria Marks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

The fattest folk in Imperial Terra Australis look to be the happiest ones, schoolchildren learn an R-rated version of "Head, Shoulders, Knees and Toes", the sound of office water cooler chatter has been replaced by the whirring of computer cooling fans, and Pisces Homonis is the self-declared God of all Imperial Terra Australis. Crime, especially youth-related, is relatively low. Imperial Terra Australis's national animal is the Emu, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Pisces Gloriae.

Imperial Terra Australis is ranked 180,474th in the world and 574th in The Communist Bloc for Rudest Citizens, with 27.79 Insults Per Minute.
