The Kingdom of Impel Down is a huge, efficient nation, renowned for its frequent executions, public floggings, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 448 million Impelians 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 medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Administration, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Los Phantom. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 51.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Impelian economy, worth 46.8 trillion belis a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 104,556 belis, with the richest citizens earning 6.5 times as much as the poorest.

The pursuit of wanted criminals ends at the entrance of the pay'n'spray garage as police refuse to enter any private property, a spate of enforced closures has left 'Government FM' as the nation's only radio station, Impel Down Barrier Island residents anxiously await their 'Bridge to Somewhere', and all telephone traffic is monitored for 'national security reasons'. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Impel Down's national animal is the dragon, which can occasionally be seen dodging aircraft in the nation's cities.

Impel Down is ranked 92,049th in the world and 4,171st in The North Pacific for Rudest Citizens, with 52.66 Insults Per Minute.
