Overview Factbook People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Plaything of Der Grobman is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Gott Doktor Heinrich Grobman with an iron fist, and renowned for its zero percent divorce rate, strictly enforced bedtime, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 3.274 billion Der Grobmanians 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 tiny, corrupt, pro-business, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order is also considered important, while Social Policy and Welfare are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Area 17. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 4.8%.

The all-consuming Der Grobmanian economy, worth 425 trillion Reichsmarks a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Gambling, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an impressive 130,066 Reichsmarks, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,035,885 per year while the poor average 3,882, a ratio of 266 to 1.

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, especially youth-related, is relatively low, thanks to a capable police force. Der Grobman's national animal is the Eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Der Grobmanism.
