The Imperium of Squornshelous is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Emperor Girma Zeta I with an iron fist, and renowned for its parental licensing program, ubiquitous missile silos, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 14.622 billion Squornshelans are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The tiny, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Industry and Law & Order are also considered important, while Social Policy and Environment receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Vogsphere. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 3.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Squornshelousian economy, worth a remarkable 3,565 trillion Squornshelan Credits a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Automobile Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Information Technology, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an amazing 243,851 Squornshelan Credits, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 748,762 per year while the poor average 61,417, a ratio of 12.2 to 1.

Adults have never outgrown their fear of monsters, commuter vessels have trouble staying afloat due to increased passengers, glittering new sports stadiums adorn every city and town, and frequent broken zippers have resulted in safety pins making a fashion comeback. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force. Squornshelous's national animal is the Ferret, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Squornshelous is ranked 857th in the world and 30th in the West Pacific for Largest Agricultural Sector, scoring 14,118.97 on the Mu-Bah-Daggs Productivity Index.
