The Imperial Federation of Improper Classifications is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Emperor Michael II with an iron fist, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, infamous sell-swords, and otherworldly petting zoo. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 4.3 billion Classifiers 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 juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Thunder City. The average income tax rate is 96.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Classified economy, worth a remarkable 1,299 trillion Classifications 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, fairly diversified black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Cheese Exports, 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 302,240 Classifications Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation's train stations are widely considered to be the ugliest in The Galactics Union, there's a shortage of swinging hot spots as land development grinds to a halt, children have lost interest in toy guns in favor of toy meth lab kits, and the government terminates employment with extreme prejudice. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Improper Classifications's national animal is the Wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Faith of the Golden Mile.

Improper Classifications is ranked 214,665th in the world and 53rd in The Galactics Union for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 49.5 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
