The Empire of The Hoosier Alliance is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by General Jones with an iron fist, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, prohibition of alcohol, and avowedly heterosexual populace. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 9.57 billion Hoosiers 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 relatively small, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is effectively ruled by the Department of Defense, although Education, Spirituality, and Law & Order are also considered important, while Social Policy and Environment are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Indianapolis. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 11.4%.

The all-consuming Hoosier economy, worth a remarkable 2,469 trillion dollars a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Information Technology, and Retail. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an amazing 258,002 dollars, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,361,228 per year while the poor average 26,014, a ratio of 52.3 to 1.

All telephone traffic is monitored for 'national security reasons', the homeless more often beg for mercy than money, teachers prefer to give 'Maybe, Maybe Not' tests when dealing with sensitive subjects, and theories abound over why conspiracy theorists are being arrested. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. The Hoosier Alliance's national animal is the Cardinal, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Christianity.

The Hoosier Alliance is ranked 202,957th in the world and 24th in Federation of Allies for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring -21.68 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
