The Holy Dolorian Imperium of The Traditional States is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Dux-Imperatorem John W Blackheart with an iron fist, and notable for its zero percent divorce rate, sprawling nuclear power plants, and prohibition of alcohol. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 4.679 billion Dolorians 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 medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sant'Augusto. The average income tax rate is 89.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Dolorian economy, worth 901 trillion Imperiuses a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 192,627 Imperiuses, with the richest citizens earning 5.2 times as much as the poorest.

Lawyers turn down litigation cases and corporate work in order to focus on lucrative public defence work, a firework a day does not in fact keep the doctor away, warfare increasingly resembles a video game, and tourists from around the world come to visit the country's famous rainforests. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Traditional States's national animal is the Griffin, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Dolorian Chiefolicism.

The Traditional States is ranked 6,039th in the world and 19th in Enadia for Most Developed, scoring 92.67 on the Human Development Index.
