The Imperial Confederation of Electorate is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Emperor John II with an iron fist, and remarkable for its compulsory military service, infamous sell-swords, and triple-decker prams. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 2.428 billion Electorate Citizens are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The relatively small, corrupt, pro-business government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Industry, Education, and Environment also on the agenda, while Welfare and Social Policy aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Riverdale. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 9.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Electoratean economy, worth 330 trillion United States of Justice Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Gambling. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an impressive 136,323 United States of Justice Dollars, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 668,950 per year while the poor average 15,900, a ratio of 42.1 to 1.

One year's corporation tax from three international megacorporations has funded one dozen shiny black pencils for Emperor John II's office, exceptionally healthy police officers can sprint after crooks for hours on end, possession of tomato seeds with intent to garden is a criminal offence, and gossip magazines are more interested in astrological stars than celebrity ones. Crime is a serious problem, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Electorate's national animal is the Red Fox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Russian Orthodoxy.

Electorate is ranked 3,023rd in the world and 1st in The United Leagues for Largest Retail Industry, scoring 19,311.52 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
