The Empire of The Pact of Terra is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Emperor Augustus X with an iron fist, and renowned for its lack of airports, prohibition of alcohol, and complete lack of prisons. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 17.722 billion Imperials 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 relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Imperial City. The average income tax rate is 5.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Pact of Terran economy, worth a remarkable 5,867 trillion Imperial Credits a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Furniture Restoration, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an amazing 331,065 Imperial Credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.7 times as much as the poorest.

Police conduct weekly raids looking for contraband cheeseburgers, warm coats are the hottest trend, Tarentatek sanctuaries have been taken over by hydraulic fracturing sites, and foreign ambassadors never get to see what The Pact of Terra has to offer. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Pact of Terra's national animal is the Tarentatek, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Christianity.

The Pact of Terra is ranked 7,480th in the world and 1st in Korel for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring 5,884.85 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
