The Empire of The United Anime Kingdoms is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Emperor Edward Elric with an iron fist, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, strictly enforced bedtime, and digital currency. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 3.393 billion Animenians 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 relatively small, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order, Education, and Industry also on the agenda, while International Aid and Environment are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Edo. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 15.8%.

The thriving Animenian economy, worth 275 trillion Yen a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, broadly diversified black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Retail. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 81,264 Yen, with the richest citizens earning 7.8 times as much as the poorest.

State-sanctioned torture is okay so long as there's no icky blood, the military sees national borders more as guidelines than absolutes, politicians that report exaggerated crowd sizes for their speeches are dismissed for being delusional, and government officials frown on anything more technologically advanced than an abacus. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The United Anime Kingdoms's national animal is the Dragon, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Yaoicon.

The United Anime Kingdoms is ranked 170,259th in the world and 20th in Anime for Highest Unexpected Death Rate, scoring 28.55 on the Bus Surprisal Index.
