The Protectorate of Blitzmensch is a massive, safe nation, renowned for its ubiquitous missile silos, aversion to nipples, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 1.133 billion Blitzes 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.

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Administration. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 30.0%.

The powerhouse Blitzisch economy, worth 109 trillion Reichsmarks a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Automobile Manufacturing. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is 96,927 Reichsmarks, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 334,742 per year while the poor average 20,529, a ratio of 16.3 to 1.

The nation's student exchange programs are something of a one way street, retirement homes are often fitted with luxurious suites, a rolling news ticker tape of disclaimers runs across the bottom of the screen on all TV shows, and Maxtopian tourists make expensive pilgrimages to Blitzmensch City to enjoy their national art. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Blitzmensch's national animal is the Imperial Eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Blitzmensch is ranked 96,924th in the world and 7th in The Seventh Reich for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 516.92 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
