The Imperial Dominion of Longweather is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Emperor Dresden Mourningway with an even hand, and notable for its compulsory military service, unlimited-speed roads, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 14.595 billion Alor are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Oblivion. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Alor economy, worth a remarkable 5,047 trillion Imperial Yoras a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 345,859 Imperial Yoras, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Suspicious glow-in-the-dark wasps remain a source of terror and awe, Brancaland has gifted over nine thousand putrid moose carcasses to Longweather as a reminder of their "special relationship", politicians tend to jump ship to whichever party is currently leading in the polls, and exorbitant spending on icebreakers breaks the ice at every budget meeting. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Longweather's national animal is the Light Blue Longweather Sheep, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is the Church of Thesse.

Longweather is ranked 10,306th in the world and 264th in the Pacific for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 4,670.06 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
