The United Socialist Island of Imperial Terra Australis is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Pisces Homonis with an iron fist, and renowned for its irreverence towards religion, absence of drug laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 1.671 billion Imperial Terra Australisians 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 large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Impenetrabilia PortŠ. The average income tax rate is 67.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Imperial Terra Australisian economy, worth 179 trillion Imperatoria Marks 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 black market in Trout Farming, Tourism, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. 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 107,475 Imperatoria Marks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Children dream of becoming physicians and physicists, the government would rather execute a hundred innocent men than let one guilty one appeal a verdict, the new Refuse Hills housing development is under construction, and former arms manufacturing CEOs are now delivering food for minimum wage. Crime, especially youth-related, is relatively low. Imperial Terra Australis's national animal is the Emu, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Pisces Gloriae.

Imperial Terra Australis is ranked 9,518th in the world and 225th in The Communist Bloc for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring 1,900.42 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
