The Dempsey Hate Fest of Edward Richtofen is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Dr Edward Richtofen with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, state-planned economy, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless population of 8.15 billion Meinheimians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.
The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, corrupt, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Breslau. The average income tax rate is 96.9%.
The large but underdeveloped Meinheimian economy, worth 452 trillion Points a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Information Technology. Average income is 55,549 Points, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Consumption of cat memes has skyrocketed, the military invades any neighboring nation with the gall to criticize its policies, oil executives can be seen reluctantly cleaning oil-soaked birds, and foreign 'investors' have been taking a great interest in the new secret shuttle. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Edward Richtofen's national animal is the Zombie, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Hat worship.
