The Empire of Infinat is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Machu Picchu with an iron fist, and renowned for its deadly medical pandemics, compulsory military service, and disturbing lack of elderly people. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 2.357 billion Infinatians 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 Education, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kakoriko. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 48.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Infinatian economy, worth 294 trillion Empireal credits a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Arms Manufacturing. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 124,902 Empireal credits, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 353,069 per year while the poor average 35,351, a ratio of 10.0 to 1.

Billions of Empireal credits are spent to take high-quality photos of the Cyber Demon Nebula, the government extracts trade concessions from poor nations in exchange for humanitarian aid, shaken martini sales have soared in nations surrounding Infinat, and insanely good theatre productions face government censorship. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Infinat's national animal is the Cyber demon, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Infinat is ranked 135,159th in the world and 17th in Gypsy Lands for Most Primitive, scoring -164.1 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
