Twilight Imperium

Population15.777 billion

LeaderCharles Densem


The Dominion of Twilight Imperium is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Charles Densem with an even hand, and renowned for its frequent executions, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 15.777 billion Twilight Imperiumians 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 government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, corrupt morass — juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hyperion. The average income tax rate is 98.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Twilight Imperiumian economy, worth a remarkable 2,118 trillion cronuses a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Retail. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 134,288 cronuses, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.6 times as much as the poorest.

Billions are being spent on a new island airport, Charles Densem's mistress is the belle at many state balls, Hyperion is a police state during international summits, and the navy is chrome-plating its battleships to prevent rust. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Twilight Imperium's national animal is the firefly, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is theism.

Twilight Imperium is ranked 2,222nd in the world and 21st in Europeia for Highest Average Tax Rates, with 98.09 Effective Tax Rate.
