|Leader||Emperor-King Euhorn III|
|Faith||the Abbey of the Everyman|
The Empire of the Isles of The Gristolian Imperium is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Emperor-King Euhorn III with an iron fist, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, public floggings, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 2.584 billion Imperials 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, moralistic government prioritizes Defense, although Industry, Law & Order, and Administration are also considered important, while Social Policy and International Aid receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dunwall. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 7.1%.
The powerhouse Imperial economy, worth 227 trillion Gristol pounds a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Furniture Restoration, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Average income is 87,951 Gristol pounds, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 310,705 per year while the poor average 17,995, a ratio of 17.3 to 1.
Adulthood begins with the creation of an email account, the nation's gigantic air force is both respected and feared, travelers often bring empty plastic bottles on Air The Gristolian Imperium flights to avoid the pay lavatories, and tax assessment offices double as polling stations. Crime is a problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. The Gristolian Imperium's national animal is the Driscolian swan, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is the Abbey of the Everyman.
