The Imperial Evolution

Population2.698 billion



The Empire of The Imperial Evolution is a massive, safe nation, notable for its compulsory military service, ubiquitous missile silos, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed population of 2.698 billion Imperial Evolutionians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Grandtech. The average income tax rate is 53.5%.

The Imperial Evolutionian economy, worth 169 trillion pounds a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Basket Weaving. Average income is 62,762 pounds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.3 times as much as the poorest.

Government bureaucrats devote many man-hours to trying to measure unquantifiables, court verdicts are predictable to within a hundredth of a percentage point, a determined opposition debates the relative benefits of Arial and Times New Roman for days on end, and many friends and relatives of Leader have been given ambassador jobs in tropical island nations. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Imperial Evolution's national animal is the Dog, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

The Imperial Evolution is ranked 33,271st in the world and 1,626th in Balder for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring 839.95 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
