The New Gothic Empire of Automagfreek is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Lord Damien Dreadfire II with an even hand, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 33.299 billion Freeks have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized, corrupt government is dominated by the Department of Defense, with Law & Order and Industry also on the agenda, while Environment and Social Policy are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of ULE City. The average income tax rate is 98.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Freekish economy, worth an astonishing 13,556 trillion marks a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Automobile Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 407,123 marks, with the richest citizens earning 6.6 times as much as the poorest.

Even the family pets of Brasilistani insurgents are being put down, anyone found to be unemployed is shipped off to Brasilistan with a gun and a spade, Brasilistanis face layers of paperwork in a different language just to visit a doctor, and newborns are being raised as mindless killing machines. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Automagfreek's national animal is the Piranha, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to heavy metals seepage into national waterways, and its national religion is Vanmakt.

Automagfreek is ranked 5,886th in the world and 9th in Gholgoth for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 479.5 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
