The Fraternal Federation of The Imperial Regions of Commerce is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Chairman Anderson with an iron fist, and remarkable for its parental licensing program, compulsory military service, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 13.163 billion Citizens 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 relatively small, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Spirituality. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Harmony. The average income tax rate is 19.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Federal economy, worth a remarkable 2,621 trillion Units a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Retail, and Uranium Mining. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 199,160 Units, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The freedom to be free is always just out of reach, diplomatic fallout tends to be much more dangerous than radioactive fallout, the national defense strategy is a little floppy, and The Very Hungry Caterpillar has been banned for advocating gluttony. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force. The Imperial Regions of Commerce's national animal is the Turkey, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Christianity.

The Imperial Regions of Commerce is ranked 3,575th in the world and 1st in Cymopolia for Fattest Citizens, with 29.37 Obesity Rate.
