The Second Atheistic Empire of Imperial Royal Union is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Emperor Thales XIII with an even hand, and renowned for its smutty television, frequent executions, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 14.675 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 prioritizes Law & Order, although Industry, Environment, and Education are also considered important, while Spirituality and Welfare receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Port Imperial. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 41.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Imperialean economy, worth a remarkable 2,536 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 172,842 Imperial Royale Elites, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 515,444 per year while the poor average 45,384, a ratio of 11.4 to 1.

Many mayors are barely in office before being kicked out for minor parking violations, subsidisation of Big Pharma has stopped many corporate executives from having to sell their second homes, Emperor Thales XIII's media campaigns take a hiatus around exam week, and statues of famous citizens are erected or demolished on a purely partisan basis. 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 29,186th in the world and 10th in The Crown Federation of Recon for Most Cultured, scoring 75 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
