The Dominion of Disco Empire is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Head of Council Blackadder with an even hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, national health service, and complete lack of prisons. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 20.289 billion Disco Empireans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Heartland. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Disco Empirean economy, worth an astonishing 10,608 trillion grooves a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is a breathtaking 522,860 grooves, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Cars speed down national highways while drivers sleep at the wheel, rocket boots and thermal detonators have become standard-issue military gear, the freedom to be free is always just out of reach, and the mining industry is making inroads into environmentally sensitive areas. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Disco Empire's national animal is the disco duck, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Disco Empire is ranked 108,015th in the world and 5th in Federation of Planets Headquarters for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 52.4 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
