The Tour de Force of The Imperial Reach is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by MaŽlle 'La Forte' with an iron fist, and renowned for its smutty television, pith helmet sales, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 4.813 billion Reachmen 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 enormous, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Garder de Fer. The average income tax rate is 70.9%.

The thriving Reach economy, worth 343 trillion francs a year, is quite specialized and led by the Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Automobile Manufacturing, and Uranium Mining. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 71,317 francs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.7 times as much as the poorest.

Not even good behaviour will get transgender inmates any special perks, there has been a series of riots between local cannibals and health food advocates, third world countries are rich in "I Love Garder De Fer" t-shirts, and there are traffic jams at sea as diligent customs officers check every part of every ship. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Imperial Reach's national animal is the wolf, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Gloire.

The Imperial Reach is ranked 70,654th in the world and 15th in The Commonwealth of Crowns for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with 843.03 Tourists Per Hour.
