Imperium Sempiternum

Population2.27 billion



The Empire of Imperium Sempiternum is a massive, safe nation, renowned for its pith helmet sales, complete lack of prisons, and avowedly heterosexual populace. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 2.27 billion Imperium Sempiternumians 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 medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Imperium. The average income tax rate is 74.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Imperium Sempiternumian economy, worth 376 trillion Golds a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 165,652 Golds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Tourists avoid using the nation's bugged phones and monitored internet, families waiting for delayed pipe installations hope daily for rain, nephews and nieces of the monarch resort to begging from relatives in palace halls, and pony-derived products are greasing the wheels of industry (Imperium Sempiternum has found 7 easter eggs). Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Imperium Sempiternum's national animal is the Cow, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Imperium Sempiternum is ranked 136,042nd in the world and 6,304th in the South Pacific for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring 606.05 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
