The Holy Dolorian Imperium of The Traditional States is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Dux-Imperatorem John W Blackheart with an iron fist, and notable for its enslaved workforce, avant-garde cinema, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 4.628 billion Dolorians 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 juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sant'Augusto. The average income tax rate is 89.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Dolorian economy, worth 882 trillion Imperiuses a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 190,728 Imperiuses, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.5 times as much as the poorest.

The automotive industry soaks up huge government handouts, giggling teens are asked to put their mouths on rubber dolls, funerals are often rudely interrupted by juggling clowns shouting for volunteers from the audience, and children who believe in the tooth fairy are frequently shipped off to Bigtopia. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Traditional States's national animal is the Griffin, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Dolorian Chiefolicism.

The Traditional States is ranked 4,901st in the world and 12th in Enadia for Lowest Crime Rates, with 109.06 Law-abiding Acts Per Hour.
