Impel Down

Population327 million

CapitalLos Phantom


The Kingdom of Impel Down is a huge, efficient nation, remarkable for its public floggings, compulsory military service, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 327 million Impelians 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 medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Los Phantom. The average income tax rate is 49.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Impelian economy, worth 30.8 trillion belis a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Arms Manufacturing, and Uranium Mining. Average income is 94,185 belis, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Airship use has soared while property values beneath their routes have plummeted, there's a revolutionary culture in the nation's dairies, sofas are perpetually on sales that Must End Soon, and for the sake of 'public interest' news programs tell viewers how to home-make Sarin gas bombs. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Impel Down's national animal is the dragon, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Impel Down is ranked 80,924th in the world and 2,987th in The North Pacific for Most Politically Apathetic Citizens, with 51.62 Whatever.
