Das vierhundertzwanzigste Reich

Population1.246 billion

AnimalBlack Eagle

The Empire of Das vierhundertzwanzigste Reich is a massive, orderly nation, renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, state-planned economy, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 1.246 billion Das vierhundertzwanzigste Reichians 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 medium-sized, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Administration, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 34.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Das vierhundertzwanzigste Reichian economy, worth 56.7 trillion Marks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient black market in Woodchip Exports, Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Information Technology. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 45,478 Marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Everyone apparently sends Leader hair-filled lockets, offers to die heroically, and poetic desires to co-parent a child, clowns are being rounded up and admitted to mental institutions, citizens are told that foreigners are hungry ghosts who eat the flesh of the overly curious, and park rangers perform full-body searches on suspected fungus smugglers. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Das vierhundertzwanzigste Reich's national animal is the Black Eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Das vierhundertzwanzigste Reich is ranked 54,586th in the world and 3,454th in Balder for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 93.27 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
