The Empire of The United Empire States is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Emperor Preston III with an iron fist, and remarkable for its pith helmet sales, ubiquitous missile silos, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 2.759 billion United Empire Statesians 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 prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order, Healthcare, and Education are also considered important, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Beverley City. The average income tax rate is 67.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse United Empire Statesian economy, worth 262 trillion Imperial Dollars a year, is quite specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 95,205 Imperial Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Pet owners must make a payment if their charges leave a deposit, state media features lively debates such as whether pineapple on pizza is an acceptable topping, statue-sitting has replaced the stake-out as the dullest form of police duty, and the carbon footprint falls along with the human footprint during war. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The United Empire States's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

The United Empire States is ranked 134,421st in the world and 113th in New Western Empire for Most Extreme, scoring 15.83 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
