The Imperium of The Rising Sun of Doom is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Emperor Rogarius I with an iron fist, and renowned for its state-planned economy, pith helmet sales, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 2.521 billion Rising Sun of Doomians 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 medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sunny Doncaster. The average income tax rate is 65.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Doomian economy, worth 341 trillion Ogs 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 black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Retail. 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 an impressive 135,334 Ogs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The carbon footprint falls along with the human footprint during war, cleaners are very careful not to bump into the big red button on Emperor Rogarius I's desk, nuclear warheads are frequently launched into space as a warning to invading meteoroids, and the national security service are a bunch of crooks. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Rising Sun of Doom's national animal is the Manticore, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Rogariousism.

The Rising Sun of Doom is ranked 38,191st in the world and 2,017th in Balder for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 1,988.59 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
