The Sovereign Imperial Overlords

Population20.678 billion

CapitalThe Imperial City


The Empire of The Sovereign Imperial Overlords is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by OVERLORD with an iron fist, and remarkable for its public floggings, sprawling nuclear power plants, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 20.678 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 aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Imperial City. The average income tax rate is 98.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Sovereign Imperial Overlordsian economy, worth an astonishing 14,224 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 687,911 Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Formerly fertile fields are being leached dry of nutrients by intensive farming, the latest guided missile cruiser "Ship-1642" has received precisely zero column inches in the press, armed police are cracking down on untaxed collectable-card-trading in local junior schools, and the government blames all suspicious phenomena on flying saucers. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. 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 215,091st in the world and 6,789th in Osiris for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring -52.92 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
