The Theocratic Republic of The Imagination Animals is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Supreme Leader Eric Wright with an iron fist, and renowned for its teetotalling pirates, avowedly heterosexual populace, and zero percent divorce rate. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 2.234 billion Imaginanimalsians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The enormous, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Crossoveripolis. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 82.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Imagination Animalsian economy, worth 313 trillion Crossoverian Rials a year, is led by the Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Furniture Restoration, and Tourism. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 140,430 Crossoverian Rials, with the richest citizens earning 8.8 times as much as the poorest.

Radio stations are forbidden to play anything with too much drum or bass, Supreme Leader Eric Wright is worshipped as a god, high school bands practice by moonlight, and the police use sound cannons and mortars to deal with loud parties. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Imagination Animals's national animal is the Virginia Opossum, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Hefflism.

The Imagination Animals is ranked 9,545th in the world and 2nd in Amalgamated Federation for Largest Mining Sector, scoring 9,361.37 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
