The Most Serene Republic of Imzhou is a huge, safe nation, notable for its smutty television, keen interest in outer space, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 948 million Imzhouans are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The large, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Puojing. The average income tax rate is 79.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Imzhouan economy, worth 104 trillion Joycoins a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Cheese Exports. Average income is an impressive 109,782 Joycoins, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Frat-house partying has become the national pastime, anti-government political posters adorn every building like wallpaper, passengers often cause a stink on public transport, and elementary school students are required to master Bach's Chaconne in D before graduation. Crime is totally unknown. Imzhou's national animal is the Thunder Dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Imzhou is ranked 107,761st in the world and 47th in Refugia for Highest Economic Output, with 103 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
