The Democratic Union of Impler is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by President Merkel with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, free-roaming dinosaurs, and ubiquitous missile silos. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 6.788 billion Implerians 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 large government prioritizes Education, with Administration, Industry, and Environment also on the agenda, while Spirituality is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Embury. The average income tax rate is 86.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Implerian economy, worth a remarkable 1,090 trillion dollars a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 160,663 dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Nano-Peregrine Falcons are the current fad sweeping the nation, footballers are doing aerobics in the sauna to build their hot weather endurance, it is illegal for police officers to carry out searches due to strict privacy laws, and conspiracy theorists allege Embury's new subway map resembles Satanic symbols. Crime is totally unknown. Impler's national animal is the Peregrine Falcon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Hypnotism.

Impler is ranked 5,955th in the world and 274th in The North Pacific for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 6,717.68 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
