Impel Down

Population464 million

CapitalLos Phantom


The Kingdom of Impel Down is a huge, orderly nation, remarkable for its compulsory military service, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 464 million Impelians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Los Phantom. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 50.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Impelian economy, worth 49.4 trillion belis a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 106,457 belis, with the richest citizens earning 6.4 times as much as the poorest.

The government's giant servers are often used as a tourist trap, legal contracts aren't worth the paper they're written on, scientists are researching the best way to kill off humanity to prevent catastrophic war, and selfie stick use is a required Scout badge. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Impel Down's national animal is the dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Impel Down is ranked 20,791st in the world and 1,125th in The North Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 82.19 on the Human Development Index.
