The Imperial Dominion of Longweather is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Emperor Dresden Mourningway with an even hand, and notable for its digital currency, irreverence towards religion, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 14.576 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 5,050 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 346,519 Imperial Yoras, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Space has been brought down to earth with constellations of cancer cases across Longweather, enemy navies sail within bombardment range of major coastal cities with impunity, no-one can foil the ambitions of Big Aluminium, and space shuttles regularly launch rubbish into space. 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 177,947th in the world and 5,537th in the Pacific for Most Pro-Market, scoring -73.78 on the Rand Index.
