The Greater Galactic Empire of Imperial Akatsuki is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by God Emperor Vlad with an iron fist, and renowned for its pith helmet sales, public floggings, and parental licensing program. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 6.483 billion Imps 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 medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Byss. The average income tax rate is 99.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Imperial economy, worth a remarkable 2,406 trillion Succs 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, Woodchip Exports, and Uranium Mining. 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 amazing 371,136 Succs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

The government's foreign policy statements are less threatening than a World Assembly cease-and-desist letter, the government considers it a sacred duty to video bikini-clad beach swimmers, the nation's generous tax credits have brought all the film studios to the yard, and kitchen patrol is dominated by ten-year-old runts. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Imperial Akatsuki's national animal is the Hollow, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Imperial Akatsuki is ranked 207,930th in the world and 8,145th in The East Pacific for Highest Crime Rates, with 1.13 Crimes Per Hour.
