The Iron-Fisted Imperium of Heilhum Imperius is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by High Lord Copperteir with an iron fist, and renowned for its otherworldly petting zoo, zero percent divorce rate, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 4.934 billion Imperials are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The medium-sized, corrupt, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Aurum. The average income tax rate is 75.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Heilhum Imperiusian economy, worth a remarkable 1,005 trillion Imperium Aeris 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 Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Tourism. 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 203,730 Imperium Aeris, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Internet moderator is one of the most popular jobs among the nation's more socially awkward citizens, left-wing militias train children how to properly burn down banks, standard-issue infantry rifles now have carnations instead of bayonets, and school guidance counselors recommend monastic vows as an alternative to higher education. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Heilhum Imperius's national animal is the Aes Numen, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Nationalism.

Heilhum Imperius is ranked 26,083rd in the world and 989th in The North Pacific for Most Subsidized Industry, scoring 4,759.45 on the Gilded Widget Scale.
