The Imperium of ANGERYISTS is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Big Meat with an iron fist, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, public floggings, and strictly enforced bedtime. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 4.805 billion Angeryists are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order, Education, and Administration are also considered important, while International Aid is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of FUGG. The average income tax rate is 99.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Angeryist economy, worth a remarkable 1,419 trillion Punches in the Throats 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 large, well-organized, fairly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing and Information Technology. 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 an amazing 295,348 Punches in the Throats, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

The relatives of suicide victims tend to be angry rather than sad, retirement homes are often fitted with luxurious suites, there's a bright dawn ahead for ANGERYISTS, and policemen regularly conduct midnight raids on closed donut shops to 'collect evidence'. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. ANGERYISTS's national animal is the Snek, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Being really pissed.

ANGERYISTS is ranked 1,642nd in the world and 51st in Balder for Most Developed, scoring 97.89 on the Human Development Index.
