The Northern Lordships and Isles of The Imperium Collectives is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Crown Prince Valedaens Normark di Holdan with an iron fist, and notable for its ubiquitous missile silos, state-planned economy, and pith helmet sales. The compassionate, cynical, cheerful, devout population of 14.013 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, socially-minded, 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 4,885 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 348,669 𝒦ronemarks, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Officials pull all-nighters to check immigrants for potential links to terrorists, kids are arrested at gunpoint for playing with toy rifles, soldiers find that home gadgets and power tools are more effective as improvised weapons than the guns they've been issued, and octogenarian swimsuit models insist that they've still got it. 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 207,229th in the world and 1st in This Corner Of The World for Fattest Citizens, with 0.97 Obesity Rate.
