Imperial Flaming Empire

Population457 million

CapitalFlaming City


The Dictatorship of Imperial Flaming Empire is a huge, safe nation, renowned for its anti-smoking policies, triple-decker prams, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 457 million Flamingzes are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Flaming City. The average income tax rate is 50.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Imperial Flaming Empirean economy, worth 39.4 trillion Sparkzes a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is 86,160 Sparkzes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Neighbourhood gossips whip up controversy about those receiving adult merchandise, belligerent citizens shoot at passing clouds for 'violating their airspace', Scoutmasters debate whether luxury log cabins defeat the purpose of camping, and tipsy fans frequently invite themselves to the board meetings of sports clubs. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Imperial Flaming Empire's national animal is the Dragon, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Imperial Flaming Empire is ranked 241,005th in the world and 12th in Equis for Most Beautiful Environments, with 17.53 pounds of wildlife per square mile.
