The Northern Lordships and Isles of The Imperium Collectives is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Crown Prince Valedaens Normark di Holdan with an iron fist, and remarkable for its ban on automobiles, compulsory military service, and parental licensing program. The compassionate, cynical, cheerful, devout population of 13.186 billion Collectivists are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The enormous, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of MariahÝst. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Collectivist economy, worth a remarkable 4,557 trillion 𝒦ronemarks 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 Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an amazing 345,651 𝒦ronemarks, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Tech-mad citizens think that the laser-powered bread-slicer uPhone App is the coolest thing since sliced bread, space research funding has hit a recent high while several military bases are being closed down, hymns sung by popular choirs top the billboard charts, and foreign musicians that Crown Prince Valedaens Normark di Holdan dislikes are turned away at the border. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Imperium Collectives's national animal is the Gyrfalcon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Northern Reformed.

The Imperium Collectives is ranked 4,629th in the world and 1st in This Corner Of The World for Largest Information Technology Sector, scoring 39,174.31 on the Fann-Boi Productivity Index.
