The Holy Dolorian Imperium of The Traditional States is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Dux-Imperatorem John W Blackheart with an iron fist, and notable for its closed borders, compulsory military service, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 4.616 billion Dolorians 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 Education, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sant'Augusto. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 89.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Dolorian economy, worth 875 trillion Imperiuses a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 189,605 Imperiuses, with the richest citizens earning 5.9 times as much as the poorest.

Government statistics suggest 115% of the population love Dux-Imperatorem John W Blackheart, citizens who don't attend the nation's massive military parades tend to disappear overnight, selling your granddad's clothes requires an incredible amount of paperwork, and graffiti graces every city's streets. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Traditional States's national animal is the Griffin, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Dolorian Chiefolicism.

The Traditional States is ranked 194,523rd in the world and 392nd in Enadia for Safest, scoring 11.92 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
