The Imperium of Sudardes is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Elizabeth Baxton with an iron fist, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, complete lack of prisons, and otherworldly petting zoo. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 8.593 billion Sudardesians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The relatively small, corrupt, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Industry, Education, and Law & Order also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Social Policy aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Constantinople. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 49.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Sudardesian economy, worth a remarkable 3,511 trillion Sudardesian Nuggets a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 408,623 Sudardesian Nuggets, with the richest citizens earning 7.2 times as much as the poorest.

Diplomats shake hands with their right and hide a poison dagger in their left, the optimally efficient parking strategy for business commuters is referred to as the "traveling salesman problem", the education system is being cleansed of all corporate influence, and blasphemers and government critics often die in very unusual and unlikely accidents. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Sudardes's national animal is the Dragon, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Orthodox Druidism.

Sudardes is ranked 2,113th in the world and 2nd in The Democratika for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring 12,519.36 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
