The Galactic Empire of Imperial Akatsuki is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by God Emperor Vlad with an iron fist, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, prohibition of alcohol, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 3.821 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 prioritizes Defense, with Education, Law & Order, and Administration also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Environment receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Byss. The average income tax rate is 98.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Imperial economy, worth 976 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 slick, highly efficient, fairly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, 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 amazing 255,623 Succs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.9 times as much as the poorest.

CSI Forest is this year's hit new crime show, multiple births are a cause of celebration for tax collectors, a recent political speech drew the ire of nerds everywhere after the speaker claimed that Darth Vader was Harry Potter's father, and the nation grinds to a halt for afternoon tea. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Imperial Akatsuki's national animal is the Hollow, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Imperial Akatsuki is ranked 305th in the world and 8th in The East Pacific for Most Secular, with 99.19 Atheism Rate.
