The Glorious Reich of A Deadly Wasteland is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by His Holiness Supreme Leader Ben with an iron fist, and renowned for its ubiquitous missile silos, keen interest in outer space, and complete lack of prisons. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 2.3 billion Wastelanders are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The relatively small, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Neu Berlin. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 45.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Wastelandish economy, worth 454 trillion Reichsmarks a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 197,592 Reichsmarks, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 710,694 per year while the poor average 39,321, a ratio of 18.1 to 1.

Major corporations receive tax breaks for no apparent reason, diplomats shake hands with their right and hide a poison dagger in their left, cops with assault weaponry are forcing their way into private homes to search for terrorists, and the fines for getting caught with the wrong recipe book can force Wastelanders into bankruptcy. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. A Deadly Wasteland's national animal is the Radroach, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Mullinism.

A Deadly Wasteland is ranked 104,420th in the world and 6th in The Seventh Reich for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 813.7 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
