The Imperial City and Hinterland of Perchan is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Kaiser-Meister Grimald von Barschan with an iron fist, and renowned for its sprawling nuclear power plants, ubiquitous missile silos, and public floggings. The compassionate, cynical population of 9.364 billion Perchanians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Imperial City of Perchan. The average income tax rate is 95.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Perchanian economy, worth a remarkable 1,601 trillion Imperial Perchmarks a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 171,065 Imperial Perchmarks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Police conduct weekly raids looking for contraband cheeseburgers, the 'maybe not shock and awe' foreign policy initiative is showing promise, they say that Perchanians made a dessert and called it peace, and nuclear physics is the most popular course at university. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Perchan's national animal is the Perchanian Bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Perchanian Reformation Church.

Perchan is ranked 117,016th in the world and 4,442nd in Lazarus for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 457.64 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
