The Imperial Dominion of Longweather is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Emperor Dresden Mourningway with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, unlimited-speed roads, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless population of 11.62 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, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Oblivion. The average income tax rate is 99.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Alor economy, worth a remarkable 3,507 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 led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 301,865 Imperial Yoras, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Troop transports blacken the sky as the military commences Operation Desert Ocean, nation-building is the new national pastime, the nation has abandoned Brasilistan to its fate, and most ambassadors from Longweather retire only a few years after being appointed. 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 51,632nd in the world and 2,007th in the Pacific for Largest Mining Sector, scoring 3,324.84 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
