The Empire of The Galactic Union of All Mankind is a huge, orderly nation, remarkable for its enslaved workforce, compulsory military service, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 476 million Imperials are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized morass — juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Spirituality. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Holy Terra. The average income tax rate is 77.8%.

The sizeable but underdeveloped Galactic Union of All Mankindian economy, worth 16.8 trillion Throne Gelts 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 a large, well-organized, extremely specialized black market in Trout Farming and Tourism. 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 35,283 Throne Gelts, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.7 times as much as the poorest.

Galactic Union of All Mankindian athletes are close to breaking the 2 minute mile and the 16 meter long jump, all writing must pass a censorship board before being allowed on the shelves, breaking rocks in the hot sun now involves using your head, and The Galactic Union of All Mankind has designated Holy Terra as its capital city. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Galactic Union of All Mankind's national animal is the Imperial Aquila, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

The Galactic Union of All Mankind is ranked 208,473rd in the world and 7th in Syndicalist America for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring -11.14 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
