The Empire of Mundus Imperium is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Emperor Joseph the I with an iron fist, and remarkable for its closed borders, complete lack of prisons, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 10.766 billion imperials 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 Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Imperial City. The average income tax rate is 79.9%.

The frighteningly efficient imperial economy, worth a remarkable 3,287 trillion denarii a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 305,393 denarii, with the richest citizens earning 5.0 times as much as the poorest.

Jaywalking is punishable by public flogging, city workers have declared that rolling markets aren't good for business after all, hordes of unemployed lumberjacks have resorted to cutting down utility poles to satisfy their cravings, and the Police Surveillance Unit's motto is "Gotta Catch 'Em All". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Mundus Imperium's national animal is the Dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Church of Joseph the I.

Mundus Imperium is ranked 899th in the world and 2nd in The Crown Federation of Recon for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 916.34 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
