The Protectorate of Royal Institution-Imperial Academy is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Chancellor Ulfrick with an even hand, and notable for its rum-swilling pirates, barren, inhospitable landscape, and ban on automobiles. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 1.119 billion Royal Imperials 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 relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Roinima Chancellorship District. The average income tax rate is 30.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Royal Imperial economy, worth 160 trillion Kroens 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 black market in Retail, Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Soda Sales. 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 impressive 143,494 Kroens, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Engineers preemptively order lawyers after every power cut, the saying 'break a leg' is now taken literally, laser-wielding robots are taking aim at human hearts, and the government is reining in public spending. Crime is a problem, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Royal Institution-Imperial Academy's national animal is the Dragon, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Royal Institution-Imperial Academy is ranked 16,684th in the world and 437th in the West Pacific for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 276.7 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
