The Infinite Ascendancy of The Imperium Haeretica is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by His Ethereal Majesty Arch-Emperor Tau IX with an iron fist, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies, public floggings, and vat-grown people. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 2.157 billion Heretics are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt, 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 Crypthelm. The average income tax rate is 45.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Imperio Haeretici economy, worth 268 trillion Silvers a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Retail. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an impressive 124,448 Silvers, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.4 times as much as the poorest.

Gigantic marble churches take up almost half the land area of small villages, the government maintains a Department of Skulduggery, doctors spend more time writing sick notes than caring for the sick, and motorists must pay to enter inner-cities during peak hours. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Imperium Haeretica's national animal is the Rabbit, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Omnism.

The Imperium Haeretica is ranked 113,533rd in the world and 691st in Europe for Most Compassionate Citizens, scoring 37.37 on the Kitten Softness Rating.
