The Trans-Ascendant Empyrea of The Galactic American Imperium is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by President Kaeso with an iron fist, and renowned for its digital currency, avowedly heterosexual populace, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 7.721 billion Imperial Americans 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 medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Industry, Education, and Law & Order also on the agenda, while Welfare and Spirituality aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Americana. The average income tax rate is 99.8%.

The frighteningly efficient American economy, worth a remarkable 5,076 trillion Interstellar Imperial Dollars 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, broadly diversified black market in Information Technology and Arms Manufacturing. 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 a breathtaking 657,431 Interstellar Imperial Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Penny whistles have been rebranded 'tin hornpipes', major cities shut down as their local sports team takes to the field every day, politicians preface their speeches with a declaration that any resemblance to speeches given by individuals living or dead is purely coincidental, and the police think a properly conducted criminal investigation is a real pain. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Galactic American Imperium's national animal is the Imperial Abyss Eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is State Atheism.

The Galactic American Imperium is ranked 279,491st in the world and 821st in 10000 Islands for Nicest Citizens, with 0.08 average smiles per day.
