The Infinite Empire of DarthStassen is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Pope-Emperor Alexander XXIII with an iron fist, and renowned for its deadly medical pandemics, parental licensing program, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 29.022 billion Imperials 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 minute, corrupt, well-organized government, or what there is of one, is effectively ruled by the Department of Defense, although Law & Order, Education, and Industry are also considered important, while Social Policy and Environment receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Königsberg. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Imperial economy, worth an astonishing 15,712 trillion Credits a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Automobile Manufacturing. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are common. Average income is a breathtaking 541,403 Credits, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,425,440 per year while the poor average 74,820, a ratio of 32.4 to 1.

Weird kids who eat bugs are breaking the law, hiding wrinkles with make-up is illegal, business meetings across the country are interrupted by the sound of squeaking whoopee-cushions, and the inside lane of every highway is for parked vehicles only. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. DarthStassen's national animal is the dachshund, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Imperial Catholicism.

DarthStassen is ranked 97,857th in the world and 5th in Central Eastern Europe for Most Pro-Market, scoring 49.22 on the Rand Index.
