The Holy Empire of Imark is a huge, safe nation, renowned for its enslaved workforce, smutty television, and vat-grown people. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 411 million Imarkians 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 juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Flounder City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 67.7%.

The all-consuming Imarkian economy, worth 49.3 trillion Holy Bitcoins a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an impressive 119,939 Holy Bitcoins, with the richest citizens earning 6.6 times as much as the poorest.

Whenever pilots have to bail out the government bails out their company, the question of 'what is Leader's favorite color?' has been given a priority rating of burnt-orange, chest pains are considered part of the dining experience in Imarkian restaurants, and the government keeps its thumb on the scales of justice. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Imark's national animal is the Flounder, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Imark is ranked 66,127th in the world and 669th in 10000 Islands for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring 2,404.51 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
