The Galactic Empire of Particle is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by ネクロマンサー with an iron fist, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, flagrant waste-dumping, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 5.975 billion Mages 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 tiny, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of 不死. The average income tax rate is 4.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Magical economy, worth a remarkable 2,104 trillion hugs a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, broadly diversified black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Soda Sales, and Automobile Manufacturing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 352,201 hugs, with the richest citizens earning 5.1 times as much as the poorest.

Young and brooding teens are welcomed with open arms to the Dogwarts School of Strangeness and Sorcery, the tenet of free speech is held dear, a firework a day does not in fact keep the doctor away, and scientists regularly clone human beings for research purposes. Crime is relatively low. Particle's national animal is the Angel, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Magic.

Particle is ranked 66,772nd in the world and 160th in Yggdrasil for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 64.1 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
