The Imperium of Hunck is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Lord Emperor with an iron fist, and notable for its museums and concert halls, keen interest in outer space, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 14.729 billion Citizens 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 relatively small, corrupt, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Industry, Education, and Law & Order are also considered important, while Social Policy and International Aid aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Terra Nova. The average income tax rate is 74.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Imperium's economy, worth a remarkable 7,018 trillion Legions 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 an enormous, deeply entrenched, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Uranium Mining. 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 476,477 Legions, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Power to the people comes from the barrel of a gun, politicians are often found scavenging bins at night to supplement their income, nobody looks each other in the eye at neighborhood block parties any more, and peer pressure from cooler world leaders directs Imperium's government policy. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Hunck's national animal is the Penguin, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Cult of the Emperor.
