The Holy Imperium of Ostermarch is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Maximilian with an iron fist, and renowned for its digital currency, public floggings, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 8.439 billion Imperials 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 government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of El Escorial. The average income tax rate is 91.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Imperial economy, worth a remarkable 3,604 trillion crowns a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Retail, and Woodchip Exports. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 427,166 crowns, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.
Maximilian has declared a weed sticking through a crack in the sidewalk to be the nation's newest green space, teenagers sit around on their butts all day, refugee camp conversions to Imperial Cult are increasingly common, and distrust of taps has many people bathing only with bottled mineral water. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ostermarch's national animal is the demigryph, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Imperial Cult.
