The Imperial City and Hinterland of Perchan is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Kaiser-Meister Grimald von Barschan with an iron fist, and renowned for its complete lack of prisons, pith helmet sales, and infamous sell-swords. The compassionate, hard-working, cynical population of 6.98 billion Perchanians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Imperial City of Perchan. The average income tax rate is 90.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Perchanian economy, worth a remarkable 1,059 trillion Imperial Perchmarks a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 151,771 Imperial Perchmarks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.8 times as much as the poorest.

Notable individuals are granted land and titles, school uniforms are compulsory, citizens can only enjoy the splendor of the natural world in designated 'Majesty Appreciation' zones, and food voucher forgeries are causing headaches for the police. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Perchan's national animal is the Perchanian Bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Perchanian Reformation Church.

Perchan is ranked 3,905th in the world and 193rd in Lazarus for Longest Average Lifespans, with 91.02 Years.
