The Particularly Grand Duchy of Caffeinneburg is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Archduke Mister Chris VI with an iron fist, and notable for its frequent executions, ban on automobiles, and complete lack of public education. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 27.945 billion Caffeinneburgians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.
The tiny, socially-minded government is effectively ruled by the Department of Defense, with Law & Order also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Public Transport aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Caffeinneburg City. The average income tax rate is 8.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The large but sluggish Caffeinneburgian economy, worth 444 trillion orichalks a year, is driven entirely by government activity. The industrial sector is mostly comprised of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 15,918 orichalks, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Parents live in fear of governmental 'child protection' squads, the government is spending billions of taxpayer orichalks to support the Uranium Mining industry, fewer people are bathing as citizens must show ration stamps before they can turn on their faucets, and Caffeinneburg's soft-touch approach to diplomacy has made it known as the 'push-over' of the region. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. Caffeinneburg's national animal is the alzabo, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
