The Dominion of Disco Empire is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Head of Council Blackadder with a fair hand, and renowned for its soft-spoken computers, ubiquitous missile silos, and compulsory military service. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 21.854 billion Disco Empireans are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The large, socially-minded 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 11,389 trillion grooves a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is a breathtaking 521,152 grooves, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Online weather reports are predicting five years of glorious sunshine for Disco Empire, the sound of office water cooler chatter has been replaced by the whirring of computer cooling fans, birth rates have hit an all-time low, and stone wrist watches that weigh 20lb are the latest trend. 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 68,964th in the world and 4th in Federation of Planets Headquarters for Most Extreme, scoring 23.01 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
