The Imperial Republic of Terroristen is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Supreme Provisional Government Junta with an iron fist, and notable for its avowedly heterosexual populace, lack of airports, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 2.157 billion Terroristens 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 large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Law & Order and Industry are also considered important, while Education and Social Policy aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pekin. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 72.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Terroristen economy, worth 313 trillion Terrs 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 an enormous, deeply entrenched, highly specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing and Uranium Mining. 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 145,303 Terrs, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 753,548 per year while the poor average 15,180, a ratio of 49.6 to 1.

The nationalistic national anthem inspires citizens to literally spit at foreigners, tax-payers are funding ever more extravagant movie projects, a suspicious number of male students have joined the Ladies' Wrestling League, and the sound of wooden legs echo throughout Terroristen after the recent introduction of the Foot Tax. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force. Terroristen's national animal is the Wolf and Eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Terroristen is ranked 82,727th in the world and 41st in Latinoamerica Libre for Rudest Citizens, with 53.28 Insults Per Minute.
