The Imperium Empires

Population4.292 billion

LeaderEmperor Victor Shan


The Grand Amazing Empire of The Imperium Empires is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Emperor Victor Shan with an iron fist, and renowned for its compulsory military service, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 4.292 billion Imperials 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, moralistic government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Imperidox. The average income tax rate is 90.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Imperial economy, worth 535 trillion Imperiuses 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 slick, highly efficient, quite specialized black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. 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 124,853 Imperiuses, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Laser-wielding robots are taking aim at human hearts, no one is quite sure what many government officials look like, prisoners due for execution often use their final statement to complain about soggy bread rolls, and the nation's leader is normally just referred to as "snuggle-wuggle-huggy-bear". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Imperium Empires's national animal is the Scorpion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

The Imperium Empires is ranked 14,323rd in the world and 1st in Order of the Southern North for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 8,836.04 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
