The Interstellar Empire of Spherus Magna Imperium is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by God Emperor Hyperius with an iron fist, and remarkable for its national health service, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, cynical, humorless population of 8.811 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, well-organized 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. The average income tax rate is 90.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Magnan Imperial economy, worth a remarkable 1,561 trillion Credits a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 177,264 Credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

There is a growing belief that consciousness is a simulated illusion within a computer-generated reality, homeowners on prime real estate have been seen dodging giant bulldozers with cartoon characters painted on them, children dream of becoming physicians and physicists, and the nation's infamous boot camp is more brutal than most battlefields. 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 Maiasaura, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Imperial Cult.

Spherus Magna Imperium is ranked 82,706th in the world and 4,441st in The North Pacific for Most Average, scoring 38.32 on the Average Standardized Normality Scale.
