The Holy Empire of The Intermarian Order is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its frequent executions, compulsory military service, and punitive income tax rates. The quiet, industrious population of 889 million Intermarians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Grand Warsaw. The average income tax rate is 52.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Intermarian economy, worth 65.3 trillion Intermarian Korunas a year, is led by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Retail. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 73,453 Intermarian Korunas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Politicians are often seen attending regional history classes at primary schools within their constituencies, old warplanes and tanks that break down can't be repaired since no one makes the parts anymore, homeless people can be found sleeping on streets in front of unoccupied second homes, and drill sergeants yell in the ears of bespectacled nerds in cybermilitary "reboot camps". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Intermarian Order's national animal is the White Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

The Intermarian Order is ranked 129,446th in the world and 576th in Europe for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring 4.98 on the Hayek Index.
