The Empire of The Imperium of Steve is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Imperator Stephen VII with an iron fist, and remarkable for its closed borders, sprawling nuclear power plants, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 5.806 billion Latins 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 medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is dominated by the Department of Defense, with Industry also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Welfare are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dominusurbe. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 90.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Latin economy, worth a remarkable 1,876 trillion Imperial mints a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Retail, Uranium Mining, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is an amazing 323,270 Imperial mints, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,526,597 per year while the poor average 40,565, a ratio of 37.6 to 1.

The hills are alive with the smell of burning flesh, it is a common belief that a sport isn't sport if there are no decapitations, the experimental sculpture "Overtures In Dried Eagle Dung" has been declared a national treasure, and disputed territories across The North Pacific are being claimed by Latin college students. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. The Imperium of Steve's national animal is the Eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Catholicism.

The Imperium of Steve is ranked 22,110th in the world and 1,194th in The North Pacific for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring 4,513.1 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
