The Empire of The United Empire States is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Emperor Preston III with an even hand, and notable for its infamous sell-swords, pith helmet sales, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed population of 2.797 billion United Empire Statesians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large, corrupt government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order, Healthcare, and Education also on the agenda, while Spirituality is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Beverley City. The average income tax rate is 66.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse United Empire Statesian economy, worth 268 trillion Imperial Dollars a year, is quite specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 96,025 Imperial Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Statue-sitting has replaced the stake-out as the dullest form of police duty, the carbon footprint falls along with the human footprint during war, convicted felons are forced into slavery for their crimes, and corrupt Party bureaucrats are being voted out of office in overwhelming numbers. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The United Empire States's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

The United Empire States is ranked 64,661st in the world and 96th in New Western Empire for Highest Economic Output, with 268 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
