The Corporate Nation of Imperialistic States of Howa is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Omni Consumer Corp with an even hand, and remarkable for its deadly medical pandemics, parental licensing program, and otherworldly petting zoo. The hard-nosed, humorless, devout population of 17.056 billion Imperialis are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The tiny, corrupt government prioritizes Defense, although Industry, Education, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Welfare and Social Policy aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of the Imperial city. The average income tax rate is 1.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Imperial economy, worth a remarkable 6,673 trillion Imperials 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, broadly diversified black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Retail. 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 391,285 Imperials, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

New homeowners go furniture hunting with crowbars, blue sky thinkers are reminded that the firmament is actually more of a grey-ish colour, conspiracy theorists allege the Imperial city's new subway map resembles Satanic symbols, and farmers in arid regions are puzzled with government directions to plant rice this year. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Imperialistic States of Howa's national animal is the Imperial Eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Consumerism.

Imperialistic States of Howa is ranked 245,378th in the world and 9,511th in Osiris for Most Eco-Friendly Governments, scoring -40 on the Dolphin Recycling Awareness Index.
