The Imperial City and Hinterland of Perchan is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Kaiser-Meister Grimald von Barschan with an iron fist, and renowned for its free-roaming dinosaurs, compulsory military service, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, cynical population of 13.177 billion Perchanians 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 large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Imperial City of Perchan. The average income tax rate is 96.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Perchanian economy, worth a remarkable 2,243 trillion Imperial Perchmarks a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 170,224 Imperial Perchmarks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The intelligence community is playing 4-D chess with an imaginary spy network, foreign football clubs wave the Perchanian flag before every game, citizens praise the weeds that overwhelm their narrow vegetable realm, and soldiers who shoot themselves in the foot are regarded as heroes. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Perchan's national animal is the Perchanian Bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Perchanian Reformation Church.

Perchan is ranked 18,054th in the world and 314th in Lazarus for Most Stationary, with 1,240.3293103554 days.
