The Imperial Republic of Numeracy is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Mercy Yorke-Blackburn III with an even hand, and renowned for its pith helmet sales, hatred of cheese, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, cheerful, devout population of 10.938 billion Numericans are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Stippenherth. The average income tax rate is 97.0%.

The all-consuming Numerican economy, worth a remarkable 1,354 trillion Chronocredits a year, is highly specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 123,803 Chronocredits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Board shorts have replaced board rooms, would-be emigrants are told "abandon all hope all ye who would exit here", brave curators do battle with disorganised government libraries, and camera crews have accompanied conscripted dancers to film 'Marching On Ice'. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Numeracy's national animal is the Water Dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Numeracy is ranked 98,143rd in the world and 44th in Middle Earth for Most Politically Free, scoring 64.57 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
