The Royal Empire of Imperial States America is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Emperor Tex Cotton with an iron fist, and renowned for its enslaved workforce, zero percent divorce rate, and complete lack of public education. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 11.186 billion Imperialists 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 large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Spirituality, Law & Order, and Industry also on the agenda, while Welfare and Education are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Richmond. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 90.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Imperial States American economy, worth a remarkable 2,585 trillion Imperial Credits 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 Arms Manufacturing, Furniture Restoration, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. 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 amazing 231,126 Imperial Credits, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 806,733 per year while the poor average 48,167, a ratio of 16.7 to 1.

Summer science camps are regularly raided by narcotics police, euthanasia is illegal, the bayonet is cutting-edge technology, and illegal hunting is rife after veganism was recently made compulsory. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force. Imperial States America's national animal is the Mini elephant, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Church of ISA.

Imperial States America is ranked 10,122nd in the world and 1st in United Imperial Union for Lowest Crime Rates, with 92.96 Law-abiding Acts Per Hour.
