The Imperiumi of Rekken is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Empress Sievi I with an even hand, and notable for its frequent executions, sprawling nuclear power plants, and state-planned economy. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 5.7 billion Imperials are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized, corrupt government prioritizes Defense, with Education, Administration, and Industry also on the agenda, while International Aid and Spirituality aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Demonnia. The average income tax rate is 65.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Imperial economy, worth 903 trillion Munnies 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 a large, well-organized, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. 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 impressive 158,567 Munnies, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

It is illegal to make racist remarks in public, the parliament building has installed a revolving door, diplomatic missions typically end with a flurry of childish insults, accusations and phlegm, and warfare increasingly resembles a video game. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Rekken's national animal is the Demiran Desert Cat, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Rekkenism.

Rekken is ranked 135,312th in the world and 94th in The Hole To Hide In for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring 205.93 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
