The Royal Empire of Imperial States America is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Emperor Tex Cotton with an iron fist, and notable for its parental licensing program, enslaved workforce, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 9.249 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 is primarily concerned with Defense, with Spirituality, Industry, and Law & Order also on the agenda, while Welfare and Social Policy aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Richmond. The average income tax rate is 87.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Imperial States American economy, worth a remarkable 2,059 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, Uranium Mining, Furniture Restoration, 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 222,631 Imperial Credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Native tribes have been driven to extinction by hunting, it is illegal to brush crumbs off your clothing outdoors, beat cops aren't named for the territory they patrol, and foreigners are treated with great suspicion. 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 11,741st in the world and 1st in United Imperial Union for Most Influential, scoring 3,062 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
