The Duchy of Bittenfeld is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Duke Anton von Reinthaller with an even hand, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape and compulsory military service. The democratic, devout population of 6.137 billion Bittenfelders 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 government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ohnesorge. The average income tax rate is 31.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Bittenfelder economy, worth 329 trillion Reichsmarks a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Woodchip Exports, Furniture Restoration, and Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 53,687 Reichsmarks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Unpackaged foodstuffs rot on store shelves, weekly religious services often resemble campaign rallies, female newsreaders distract the nation by breastfeeding during broadcast, and prankster scientists legally change their names to silly pseudonyms before major discoveries. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Bittenfeld's national animal is the eagle, which can occasionally be seen dodging aircraft in the nation's cities, and its national religion is Wotanism.

Bittenfeld is ranked 146,962nd in the world and 18th in Hartfelden for Least Corrupt Governments, with 92.92 percentage of bribes refused.
