The Grand Empire of Supersquish is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Alerada with an iron fist, and remarkable for its disturbing lack of elderly people, state-planned economy, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 6.541 billion Supersquishians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Academy City. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Supersquishian economy, worth a remarkable 1,648 trillion Planets a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is an amazing 252,035 Planets, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government is denying reports that criminals injected with experimental drugs have turned into monstrous supervillains, the government is hungry to spread communism beyond the nation's borders, the cold war against capitalism is growing chillier by the day, and there is a growing belief that consciousness is a simulated illusion within a computer-generated reality. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Supersquish's national animal is the Exagorsaurus, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Mordredism.

Supersquish is ranked 192,666th in the world and 131st in Eientei Gensokyo for Most Pro-Market, scoring -87.22 on the Rand Index.
