The Plaything of Der Grobman is a massive, economically powerful nation, ruled by Gott Doktor Heinrich Grobman with an iron fist, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape. Its hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 3.054 billion are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The minute, corrupt, pro-business government, or what there is of one, concentrates mainly on Defence, although Law & Order and Commerce are secondary priorities. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Area 17. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 1%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, followed by Information Technology and Gambling.

Visitors to the famed rainforests are instead taken to vast furniture factories, the government seizes the property of the recently deceased, society and government have been organized according to a feudal hierarchy, and phone taps are frequently carried out by the police. Crime is a serious problem. Der Grobman's national animal is the Eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, its national religion is Der Grobmanism, and its currency is the Reichsmark.

Der Grobman is ranked 271st in Lazarus and 6,064th in the world for Largest Timber Woodchipping Industry, scoring 6 on the Tasmanian Pulp Environmental Export Index.
