The Imperial Dominion of Longweather is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Emperor Dresden Mourningway with an even hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 14.854 billion Alor are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Oblivion. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Alor economy, worth a remarkable 5,187 trillion Imperial Yoras a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 349,214 Imperial Yoras, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Red Cross demand for body bags is rising while sutures go unused, citizens have reported seeing strange rays of light emanating from the moon, sales of trenchcoats are on the rise, and hidden bedroom-cams are installed to catch mothers doing their kids' homework. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Longweather's national animal is the Light Blue Longweather Sheep, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is the Church of Thesse.

Longweather is ranked 96,951st in the world and 2,969th in the Pacific for Most Authoritarian, with 664.53 milliStalins.
