The Americancerous Polyps of Imperialism is a colossal, orderly nation, remarkable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, public floggings, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 5.585 billion imps 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 Spirituality, Law & Order, and Public Transport. The average income tax rate is 39.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The strong Imperialismian economy, worth 211 trillion Lives a year, is quite specialized and led by the Pizza Delivery industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Cheese Exports, and Retail. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is 37,819 Lives, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.

Cub scouts are being asked to hand in their woggles as the state withdraws funding for scouting, healthcare funding has been cut, hordes of gardening enthusiasts are being banished from cities nationwide, and curtailed social programs have left many citizens bereft of any safety net. Crime, especially youth-related, is almost non-existent, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. Imperialism's national animal is the God, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities, and its national religion is known to cause projectile vomiting.

Imperialism is ranked 71,462nd in the world and 3,040th in Balder for Most Efficient Economies, scoring 72.95 on the Krugman-Greenspan Business Outlook Index.
