The Holy Empire of Nation1204 is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Holy Emperor Greg with an iron fist, and renowned for its pith helmet sales, public floggings, and strictly enforced bedtime. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 2.086 billion Nationals are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order, Industry, and Spirituality are also considered important, while Social Policy and Welfare receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Moscow. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 36.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Nation1204ian economy, worth 281 trillion stavratons a year, is quite specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an impressive 134,995 stavratons, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 608,846 per year while the poor average 18,432, a ratio of 33.0 to 1.

All fantasy fiction has officially been deemed non-canon, decreased demand for toilets is saving the prison service a lot of money, drug lords often avoid prison time by teaching "chemistry" classes to underprivileged youth, and tabloids coo over Holy Emperor Greg's expected child. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Nation1204's national animal is the fox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is The Way.

Nation1204 is ranked 222,698th in the world and 24th in Absolution for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring -7.87 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
