The Royal Empire of Imperial States America is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Emperor Tex Cotton with an iron fist, and renowned for its triple-decker prams, compulsory military service, and compulsory vegetarianism. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 11.396 billion Imperialists 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 large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Spirituality, Law & Order, and Industry also on the agenda, while Welfare and Education aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Richmond. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 90.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Imperial States American economy, worth a remarkable 2,630 trillion Imperial Credits 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, quite specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Furniture Restoration, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. 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 230,803 Imperial Credits, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 805,603 per year while the poor average 48,099, a ratio of 16.7 to 1.

Illegal hunting is rife after veganism was recently made compulsory, above Imperial States America there is only sky and the fear of the unknown, citizens who don't attend the nation's massive military parades tend to disappear overnight, and government spending has hit an all-time low. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force. Imperial States America's national animal is the Mini elephant, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Church of ISA.

Imperial States America is ranked 82nd in the world and 1st in United Imperial Union for Most Primitive, scoring 634.33 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
