The Amerikanisches Reich of ThinkPads is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, ruled by General Disapproval with a fair hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 18.103 billion ThinkPadsians live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

There is no government in the normal sense of the word; however, a small group of community-minded individuals devotes most of its attentions to Law & Order, with areas such as Social Equality and Social Welfare receiving almost no funds by comparison. Income tax is unheard of. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Uranium Mining industries.

There are no minimum wage laws, mobile phone masts are being erected all over the country, employers may fire workers without giving any reason, and fine dining is just too fine for most of the populace. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is crippling. ThinkPads's national animal is the housecat, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its currency is the gold ounce.

ThinkPads is ranked 5th in libertarian and 8,872nd in the world for Most Subsidized Industry, scoring 58 on the Gilded Widget Scale.
