The Second Atheistic Empire of Imperial Royal Union is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Emperor Thales XIII with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, anti-smoking policies, and national health service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 15.043 billion Imperialeans 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 juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Industry, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Port Imperial. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 41.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Imperialean economy, worth a remarkable 2,607 trillion Imperial Royale Elites a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 173,336 Imperial Royale Elites, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 509,351 per year while the poor average 46,472, a ratio of 11.0 to 1.

Robosexual marriages are increasingly common, advert breaks are played at lower volumes to make them easier to ignore, the police double as repo men, and the question of 'what is Emperor Thales XIII's favorite color?' has been given a priority rating of burnt-orange. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Imperial Royal Union's national animal is the Imperialean Albatross, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Imperial Royal Union is ranked 144,211th in the world and 10th in The Crown Federation of Recon for Most Income Equality, scoring 9.12 on the Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
