The Imperial Fortress World of Empires Empire is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Governor-Militant Vance Stubbs with an iron fist, and remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, free-roaming dinosaurs, and unlimited-speed roads. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 8.585 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 primarily concerned with Defense, with Industry and Education also on the agenda, while Environment and Spirituality are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Imperial Planetary HQ. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 59.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Imperial Guard economy, worth a remarkable 3,644 trillion Thrones a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Soda Sales. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 424,547 Thrones, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,073,156 per year while the poor average 49,988, a ratio of 41.5 to 1.

Schoolchildren learn an R-rated version of "Head, Shoulders, Knees and Toes", foreign heads of state have taken out restraining orders against Imperial Guard ambassadors, the nation's navy has been named the scourge of the seven thousand seas, and purported secret military bases are dismissed by Governor-Militant Vance Stubbs to be highly-advanced toilet factories. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. 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 1,635th in the world and 18th in The Alliance of Dictators for Largest Mining Sector, scoring 20,681.24 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
