The Imperial Commissar

Population9.706 billion

The Absolute Monarchy of The Imperial Commissar is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Joseph Steiner with an iron fist, and renowned for its frequent executions, keen interest in outer space, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 9.706 billion Imperial Commissarians 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 effectively ruled by the Department of Defense, with Industry also on the agenda, while Environment and Welfare are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Imperial Heights. The average income tax rate is 44.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Imperial Commissarian economy, worth a remarkable 1,358 trillion dollars a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 139,980 dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

The military will start wars with other nations on a lark, the nation's new religious police burn blasphemers on bonfires of their own books, napalm is the tool of choice for disabling eco-unfriendly forestry operations, and organisations with 800 in their phone number are often raided by special forces. 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 Imperial Commissar's national animal is the hound, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Steinerism.

The Imperial Commissar is ranked 32,806th in the world and 1,754th in Balder for Most Devout, with 887.63 Prayers Per Hour.
