The Somewhat Emotional Delegate of The Royal Hapsburgs is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Cheez Lord Freddie with an iron fist, and remarkable for its ritual sacrifices, public floggings, and zero percent divorce rate. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 8.755 billion Royal Hapsburgs 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 relatively small, corrupt, moralistic, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Spirituality. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Berlin. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 3.8%.
The frighteningly efficient Hapsburgian economy, worth a remarkable 2,164 trillion German Marks a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Automobile Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Retail. Average income is an amazing 247,183 German Marks, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 787,456 per year while the poor average 59,028, a ratio of 13.3 to 1.
Airship use has soared while property values beneath their routes have plummeted, fearful citizens watch their every move as does their government, the world outside is only known of in folklore, and The Royal Hapsburgs-made cars tend to catch fire in people's driveways. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force. The Royal Hapsburgs's national animal is the Bald Eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Freddie.
