The Ancient Empire of The United Vex Imperium is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Emperor Lysander with an even hand, and notable for its anti-smoking policies, vat-grown people, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 12.267 billion Imperials have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized, corrupt government prioritizes Defense, with Education, Administration, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Spirituality receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Imperial DC. The average income tax rate is 98.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Imperial economy, worth a remarkable 5,097 trillion Talens a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, broadly diversified black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Woodchip Exports, and Book Publishing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 415,570 Talens, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The military patrols the streets in search of possible secessionists, dining out often involves Gryphons on the plate no matter what you order, guide dogs for the blind have been seen using government websites, and citizens are remarkably well involved in the political process. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. The United Vex Imperium's national animal is the Gryphon, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Imperial Cantalist Pluralism.

The United Vex Imperium is ranked 200,524th in the world and 8th in Tau for Most Extreme, scoring 12.31 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
