The Interstellar Empire of Spherus Magna Imperium is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by God Emperor Hyperius with an iron fist, and notable for its frequent executions, otherworldly petting zoo, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, cynical population of 9.704 billion Magnan Imperials 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, Industry, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Orbus Maximus. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 92.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Magnan Imperial economy, worth a remarkable 1,860 trillion Credits a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 191,679 Credits, with the richest citizens earning 6.8 times as much as the poorest.

The Grinder at Fat Sal's Deli and Recycling Center is a national institution, seven-year-olds debate for weeks on the merits of the Oxford comma, trust-fund babies line up for places in community college, and the newest shade developed by Spherus Magna Imperium's dye industry has been dubbed 'Agent Orange'. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Spherus Magna Imperium's national animal is the Dragon Turtle, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Imperial Cult.

Spherus Magna Imperium is ranked 82,948th in the world and 4,087th in The North Pacific for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 418.65 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
