The Zombie NationStates Santa of Authoritaria-Imperia is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by the zombies with an iron fist, and notable for its museums and concert halls, pith helmet sales, and state-planned economy. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 1.893 billion Authoritaria-Imperians 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 relatively small, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Administration, Welfare, and Environment also on the agenda, while International Aid and Spirituality aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Imperial Summaville. The average income tax rate is 30.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Authoritaria-Imperian economy, worth 166 trillion lucky gold coins 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 an enormous, deeply entrenched, quite specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Trout Farming, and Gambling. 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 87,922 lucky gold coins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Citizens are deployed to barren deserts to protect small territorial claims, sneezing pedestrians are grabbed by alley-lurking doctors, AI nannies tell children who refuse to go to bed that "my logic is undeniable", and suppression of pro-democracy protests is a daily occurrence. Crime, especially youth-related, is pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Authoritaria-Imperia's national animal is the wolf, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Universal Compliance.

Authoritaria-Imperia is ranked 212,697th in the world and 11th in Got Issues for Largest Agricultural Sector, scoring -9.72 on the Mu-Bah-Daggs Productivity Index.
