The Theocratic Republic of The Imagination Animals is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Supreme Leader Eric Wright with an iron fist, and notable for its public floggings, frequent executions, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 2.221 billion Imaginanimalsians 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 enormous, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Crossoveripolis. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 81.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Imagination Animalsian economy, worth 312 trillion Crossoverian Rials a year, is mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Trout Farming, Uranium Mining, Furniture Restoration, and Tourism. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 140,719 Crossoverian Rials, with the richest citizens earning 8.6 times as much as the poorest.

The crispy fried liver of a Virginia Opossum is prized as a tasty treat by vagrants, tribal villagers hide behind the sofa when missionaries knock at their doors, children are raised bilingual from an early age, and expensive lawyers are hired to defend citizens in court for public urination charges against their pets. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Imagination Animals's national animal is the Virginia Opossum, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Hefflism.

The Imagination Animals is ranked 11,734th in the world and 2nd in Amalgamated Federation for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 373,084 Standard Monetary Units.
