The Holy Empire of Imprisoned Freeman is a huge, efficient nation, renowned for its museums and concert halls, ubiquitous missile silos, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 343 million Imprisoned Freemen 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 medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Buggerland. The average income tax rate is 46.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Imprisoned Freemanian economy, worth 31.3 trillion Thingamajigs a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Automobile Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 91,334 Thingamajigs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Libraries are replacing history books and classic novels with technical manuals and trades directories to match the nation's changing demands, the examiners who examine examiners are being examined by examiners, enemy navies sail within bombardment range of major coastal cities with impunity, and primetime re-runs of The Black and White Minstrel Show are a critical hit. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Imprisoned Freeman's national animal is the Levitating Ostrich, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Imprisoned Freeman is ranked 165,267th in the world and 6,617th in The East Pacific for Fattest Citizens, with 8.54 Obesity Rate.
