The Most Serene Republic of Imzhou is a huge, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its anti-smoking policies, keen interest in outer space, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 931 million Imzhouans are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The large, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Puojing. The average income tax rate is 78.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Imzhouan economy, worth 100 trillion Joycoins a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Cheese Exports. Average income is an impressive 108,350 Joycoins, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

People with political aspirations study how to make balloon animals, no one over the age of 35 has the slightest clue what is going on, the mood of raunchy movies is often ruined by the sound of babies crying, and concussed Thunder Dragonball players cannot remember their lineup position. Crime is totally unknown. Imzhou's national animal is the Thunder Dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Imzhou is ranked 234,742nd in the world and 190th in Refugia for Most Politically Apathetic Citizens, with 35.68 Whatever.
