The Plaything of Der Grobman is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Gott Doktor Heinrich Grobman with an iron fist, and remarkable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, enslaved workforce, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 3.503 billion Der Grobmanians 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 tiny, corrupt, pro-business, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order and Industry also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Welfare aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Area 17. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 4.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Der Grobmanian economy, worth 488 trillion Reichsmarks a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Gambling, Information Technology, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 139,474 Reichsmarks, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 897,195 per year while the poor average 8,789, a ratio of 102 to 1.

Priceless Maxtopian artwork can often be found in executive bathrooms, teenage girls in knee-length surfer shorts have become a cultural icon of Der Grobman, jaywalkers are condemned to lives of poverty for their heinous crimes, and members of the government all have oddly similar anecdotes about their childhoods. Crime is moderate. Der Grobman's national animal is the Eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Der Grobmanism.

Der Grobman is ranked 46,493rd in the world and 4th in Amarite for Most Authoritarian, with 0.55 Stalins.
