The Anarqueendom of Imkiville is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Queen Imkihca with an even hand, and notable for its rum-swilling pirates, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate population of 9.013 billion Imkihceans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — prioritizes Education, with Environment, Healthcare, and Welfare also on the agenda. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Imkicity. The average income tax rate is 86.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Imkivillean economy, worth 569 trillion Ringadingdongs a year, is extremely specialized and solely comprised of the Tourism industry. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 63,194 Ringadingdongs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Saturday morning cartoons feature full frontal nudity, all footpaths have tollbooths, social media sites go into shutdown for days at a time to censor user content, and Two-headed Phoenix is one of the most popular forenames in Imkiville. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Imkiville's national animal is the Two-headed Phoenix, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Kaoism.

Imkiville is ranked 36,144th in the world and 1,928th in Lazarus for Most Developed, scoring 70.26 on the Human Development Index.
