The Rain Boots of Indian Empire is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Gus Malzahn with a fair hand, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies, ban on automobiles, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, democratic, cheerful population of 9.751 billion Empireans enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The large, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Belvior. The average income tax rate is 79.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Empirean economy, worth a remarkable 1,378 trillion Dollars a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 141,379 Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

Tech-mad citizens think that the laser-powered bread-slicer uPhone App is the coolest thing since sliced bread, the nation faces constant invasions by foreign boy bands, the new 'Who Wants To Be A Politician' election debate auditions are more popular than the debates themselves, and the election for Gus Malzahn's office's janitor is heating up. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Indian Empire's national animal is the Walrus, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Atheism.

Indian Empire is ranked 162,323rd in the world and 133rd in Texas for Largest Arms Manufacturing Sector, scoring -14.9 on the Charon Conveyancy Index.
