The Imperial Reach

Population979 million

CapitalBunker Bay


The Former Global Territory of The Imperial Reach is a huge, efficient nation, notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, smutty television, and infamous sell-swords. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 979 million 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 Education, Defense, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bunker Bay. The average income tax rate is 73.3%.

The powerhouse Reach economy, worth 69.1 trillion Rations a year, is quite specialized and led by the Uranium Mining industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Automobile Manufacturing, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 70,619 Rations, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.8 times as much as the poorest.

Toddlers are wielding machine guns in the name of national defense, the nation's navy has been named the scourge of the seven thousand seas, scenic mountain valleys are flooded with water as damming projects get underway, and games of cops and robbers typically end in at least one fatal shooting. 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 Eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

The Imperial Reach is ranked 33,563rd in the world and 12th in The Commonwealth of Crowns for Largest Manufacturing Sector, scoring 13,083.23 on the Gooback-Jerbs Productivity Index.
