The Zombi- Christmas -mpir- of Authoritaria-Imperia is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by th- zombi-s with a fair hand, and renowned for its pith helmet sales, soft-spoken computers, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, democratic, devout population of 1.429 billion Authoritaria-Imp-rians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Administration, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Imp-rial Summavill-. The average income tax rate is 66.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Authoritaria-Imperian economy, worth 187 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 Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Trout Farming, and Book Publishing. 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 130,975 lucky gold coins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

The streets are plagued with knife-wielding madmen, lip-readers are often left perplexed by political rallies, a bill to outlaw math homework has been submitted, and voter turnout for the election of the Junior Assistant for Non-Digital Media Strategies has been unsurprisingly low. Crime, especially youth-related, is a major problem, 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 Univ-rsal Complianc-.

Authoritaria-Imperia is ranked 29,441st in the world and 2nd in Got Issues for Most Developed, scoring 74.52 on the Human Development Index.
