The Federation of Imbalistan is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its compulsory military service, irreverence towards religion, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 510 million Imbali are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Beirut. The average income tax rate is 24.0%.

The powerhouse Imbali economy, worth 56.4 trillion Imbalistan Workers Credits a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Tourism. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 110,623 Imbalistan Workers Credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.5 times as much as the poorest.

Aspiring pilots must be personally vetted by the Minister of Transportation before receiving their license, weighted heels are added to military boots to ensure diminutive celebrities meet minimum requirements, major cities shut down as their local sports team takes to the field every day, and whipping posts and lashes have been transferred to the Historical Museum of Imbali Embarrassments. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Imbalistan's national animal is the Imbalistani Mountain Cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Imbalistan is ranked 118,099th in the world and 33rd in Novus Lucidum for Most Politically Free, scoring 25.43 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
