The Armed Republic of Theimpaler is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Leader with an even hand, and renowned for its sprawling nuclear power plants, daily referendums, and national health service. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 8.171 billion TheImpalerians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Environment. The average income tax rate is 67.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Theimpalerian economy, worth a remarkable 1,120 trillion Bucks a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 137,128 Bucks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Economic output is rising as the chronically depressed are persuaded not to burden society, citizens no longer take selfies with their dead relatives at funerals, foreign policy is based upon the principle of sieve and take, and the government extracts trade concessions from poor nations in exchange for humanitarian aid. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Theimpaler's national animal is the Brahma Bull, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Agnostic.

Theimpaler is ranked 39,661st in the world and 1,864th in Osiris for Largest Populations, with 8.17 billion Capita.
