The Union of Stellaire Imperiale is a massive, safe nation, ruled by l'Empereur et l'Assemblée du Tribunal with a fair hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, smutty television, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 2.864 billion Impériaux are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Paris. The average income tax rate is 97.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Impérial economy, worth 480 trillion Franc Impériauxes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 167,933 Franc Impériauxes, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The Museum of Blackacrean War Crimes is located on "Blackacre Did Nothing Wrong Avenue", television executives are interested in turning L'Empereur et l'Assemblée du Tribunal's zany home life into a sitcom, clowns are being rounded up and admitted to mental institutions, and children are raised bilingual from an early age. Crime is totally unknown. Stellaire Imperiale's national animal is the Coq Gaulois, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Stellaire Imperiale is ranked 1,232nd in the world and 22nd in The East Pacific for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 10,926.18 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
