The Supreme State of The Imperial Nation is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by The Supreme Imperial Chancellor with an iron fist, and notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and zero percent divorce rate. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 12.636 billion Imperial Citizens enjoy great individual freedoms in everything except elections, which, where they exist at all, are populist shams for a dictatorship government that has no intention of ever giving up power.

The relatively small, corrupt, pro-business, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Helios V. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 7.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Imperial economy, worth a remarkable 5,780 trillion Imperial Credits a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Retail, Information Technology, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an amazing 457,497 Imperial Credits, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 4,231,320 per year while the poor average 4,805, a ratio of 880 to 1.

Inheritance tax has recently been abolished, teens are voting on which C-List pop star will be next to be evicted from the opera house, birds and children's kites are regularly brought down by anti-aircraft fire, and contestants on 'Who Wants To Be A Millionheir?' have a 50:50 chance of humiliation. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Imperial Nation's national animal is the Tiger, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is State Atheism.

The Imperial Nation is ranked 340th in the world and 2nd in Europeia for Highest Unexpected Death Rate, scoring 556.18 on the Bus Surprisal Index.
