The Somewhat Emotional Delegate of The Royal Hapsburgs is a colossal, economically powerful nation, ruled by Kaiser Friedrich III with an iron fist, and remarkable for its complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 7.963 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.
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt, moralistic government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Defence, Law & Order, and Religion & Spirituality. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Berlin. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 51%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, followed by Automobile Manufacturing and Beef-Based Agriculture.
Computers are allowed but only just, cities are engulfed by smog, Ollie the Oiled Seal welcomes throngs of tourists to the newly opened Oil Oasis Water Park, and atheists and evolutionary biologists are fleeing the country like rats from a sinking ship. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is relatively low, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. The Royal Hapsburgs's national animal is the Bald Eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, its national religion is Followers of the Revolution, and its currency is the German Mark.
