The Crown Kingdoms of The Recon Empire is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by HM Empress Joan with an iron fist, and renowned for its pith helmet sales, zero percent divorce rate, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 18.738 billion Reconians 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, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Industry, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dion. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 4.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Reconian economy, worth a remarkable 3,552 trillion Recon Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an impressive 189,592 Recon Dollars, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 562,886 per year while the poor average 50,096, a ratio of 11.2 to 1.

National chefs believe that you can eat anything so long as you deep fry it first, the family summer vacation has become a thing of the past following the introduction of the year-round school year, edutainment video games are taking The Recon Empire's students to the next level, and people believe that if you teach a man to fish he won't buy fish from you any more. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Recon Empire's national animal is the Eagle, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Dianity.

The Recon Empire is ranked 12,757th in the world and 7th in The Crown Federation of Recon for Lowest Crime Rates, with 90.18 law-abiding acts per hour.
