The Trans-Ascendant Empyrea of The Galactic American Imperium is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by President Kaeso with an iron fist, and renowned for its rampant corporate plagiarism, soft-spoken computers, and digital currency. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 3.704 billion Imperial Americans 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 Defense, Industry, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Americana. The average income tax rate is 96.4%.

The frighteningly efficient American economy, worth a remarkable 1,831 trillion Interstellar Imperial Dollars 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 an enormous, deeply entrenched, broadly diversified black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Automobile Manufacturing. 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 amazing 494,459 Interstellar Imperial Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Historical commemorations regularly devolve into militaristic jingoism, the children of The Galactic American Imperium are often remarked upon for their cheery attitude to extreme violence, jaywalking is punishable by public flogging, and it is popularly believed that "cheese every day keeps disaster away". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Galactic American Imperium's national animal is the Imperial Abyss Eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is State Atheism.

The Galactic American Imperium is ranked 2,834th in the world and 49th in 10000 Islands for Largest Retail Industry, scoring 24,400.47 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
