The Imperial Fortress World of Empires Empire is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Governor-Militant Vance Stubbs with an iron fist, and notable for its frequent executions, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 11.055 billion Imperial Guardsmen enjoy great individual freedoms in everything except elections, which, where they exist at all, are populist shams for a dictatorship government that has no intention of ever giving up power.

The relatively small, corrupt, liberal, pro-business, well-organized government is dominated by the Department of Defense, although Industry and Education are also considered important, while Environment and Spirituality aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Imperial Planetary HQ. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 74.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Imperial Guard economy, worth a remarkable 5,346 trillion Thrones a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Retail, and Soda Sales. Average income is an amazing 483,588 Thrones, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,691,518 per year while the poor average 43,466, a ratio of 61.9 to 1.

Failed genetic experiments wreak havoc as they roam the countryside, shipping canals are a bit like unimaginative cheese shops -- filled with debris, citizens complain about a burning sensation after bathing, and indigenous tribal elders can be recognised by their designer watches and expensive suits. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Empires Empire's national animal is the grox, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is the Imperial Cult.

Empires Empire is ranked 550th in the world and 9th in The Alliance of Dictators for Most Patriotic, with 107.41 flags saluted per person per day.
