The Imperium of Remulia is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Kmer Kamile with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, rampant corporate plagiarism, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 16.853 billion Remulians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of ralera. The average income tax rate is 96.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Remulian economy, worth a remarkable 8,801 trillion lyras 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 an enormous, deeply entrenched, broadly diversified black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Retail. 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 a breathtaking 522,240 lyras, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Evenings at university debating societies often end with everyone acknowledging both sides may well be right, taking hostages is a great way to influence government policy, many marriages go virtually unconsummated, and dubiously qualified East Lebatuckese doctors prescribe ice baths as a treatment for pneumonia. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Remulia's national animal is the anooba, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Islass.

Remulia is ranked 3,287th in the world and 2nd in The Milky Way Galaxy for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 770,122 Standard Monetary Units.
