The Republic of The Imagination Animals is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Waldemar Rochester with an iron fist, and remarkable for its closed borders, enslaved workforce, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 4.926 billion Crossoverians 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 juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Industry, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Crossoveripolis. The average income tax rate is 95.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Crossoverian economy, worth a remarkable 1,239 trillion Crossoverian Rials a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Furniture Restoration, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is an amazing 251,635 Crossoverian Rials, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.9 times as much as the poorest.

A stocking with a crooked seam or a tie without a full Windsor knot are grounds for instant dismissal, the government baselessly accuses foreign dignitaries of being assassins, business ambassadors offer bong tokes to foreign leaders, and the government struggles to keep up with the endless list of petrol disasters. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Imagination Animals's national animal is the Opossum, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Islam.

The Imagination Animals is ranked 76,446th in the world and 8th in SolarFlare for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 3,764.5 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
