The Northern Lordships and Isles of The Imperium Collectives is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Sovereign Valedaens Normark di Holdan with an iron fist, and notable for its zero percent divorce rate, public floggings, and prohibition of alcohol. The compassionate, cynical, cheerful, devout population of 17.173 billion Collectivists are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, corrupt, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of MariahÝst. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Collectivist economy, worth a remarkable 6,153 trillion 𝒦ronemarks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an amazing 358,341 𝒦ronemarks, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Political speeches always take place at sunset to a background of patriotic power ballads, the nation's universities are often mistaken for foreign embassies, etiquette guides advise visitors to 'grovel gracefully', and the government keeps introducing new foreign species to combat the previous ones it has introduced. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Imperium Collectives's national animal is the Gyrfalcon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Northern Reformed.

The Imperium Collectives is ranked 251,660th in the world and 1st in This Corner Of the World for Fattest Citizens, with 0.95 Obesity Rate.
