The Holy Empire of Imperial Grand Holy Bar Stool is a massive, orderly nation, notable for its compulsory military service, punitive income tax rates, and restrictive gun laws.

The sizeable but inefficient Imperial Grand Holy Bar Stoolian economy, worth 63.0 trillion Golden Bottle Caps a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 38,798 Golden Bottle Caps, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Imperial Grand Holy Bar Stool's national animal is the Bar Stool, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
