The Sovereign Imperial Overlords

Population17.552 billion

CapitalThe Imperial City


The Empire of The Sovereign Imperial Overlords is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by OVERLORD with an iron fist, and notable for its public floggings, strictly enforced bedtime, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 17.552 billion Sovereign Imperial Overlordsians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order also on the agenda, while Welfare and Social Policy receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Imperial City. The average income tax rate is 96.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Sovereign Imperial Overlordsian economy, worth an astonishing 10,744 trillion Credits a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is a breathtaking 612,145 Credits, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 3,524,313 per year while the poor average 50,961, a ratio of 69.2 to 1.

Napalm is the tool of choice for disabling eco-unfriendly forestry operations, military pilots spend more time scraping feathers off their engines than flying their aircraft, the military will start wars with other nations on a lark, and children as young as twelve are conscripted into the armed forces. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force. The Sovereign Imperial Overlords's national animal is the Titan, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Overlordism.

The Sovereign Imperial Overlords is ranked 1,103rd in the world and 51st in Osiris for Most Avoided, scoring 1,266.75 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
