The Iron Galactic Imperium of Socialist Holy American Empire is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Emperor Heinrich VI with an iron fist, and renowned for its compulsory military service, smutty television, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 4.931 billion Imperial Amerikans 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 Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of White Palace. The average income tax rate is 68.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Socialist Holy American Empirean economy, worth 455 trillion Imperial Dollars 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 a slick, highly efficient, highly specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Trout Farming, and Information Technology. 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 92,404 Imperial Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Airplane passenger seat sizes and ticket prices are both first-class, jaywalking is punishable by public flogging, the nation's soldiers are considered the best-dressed in The East Pacific, and scientists earn more grant money for reproducing old experiments than trying anything new. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Socialist Holy American Empire's national animal is the Imperial Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Il˙vatarism.

Socialist Holy American Empire is ranked 50,455th in the world and 1,796th in The East Pacific for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring 564.11 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
