The Sovereign Imperial Overlords

Population19.809 billion

CapitalThe Imperial City


The Empire of The Sovereign Imperial Overlords is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by OVERLORD with an iron fist, and renowned for its closed borders, frequent executions, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 19.809 billion Sovereign Imperial Overlordsians 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 prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order is also considered important, while Welfare and Social Policy are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Imperial City. The average income tax rate is 98.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Sovereign Imperial Overlordsian economy, worth an astonishing 13,186 trillion Credits a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is a breathtaking 665,682 Credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

Stranded astronauts hitch rides on foreign spacecraft to get home, military spending recently hit a new high, 13-year-old internet trolls are treated as a threat on par with terrorists, and the military refers to helpless combatants offering surrender as "sitting ducks". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force. The Sovereign Imperial Overlords's national animal is the Titan, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Overlordism.

The Sovereign Imperial Overlords is ranked 26,315th in the world and 1,477th in Osiris for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 5,960.95 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
