Deum Higle

Population804 million



The Empire of Deum Higle is a huge, efficient nation, ruled by Führer with an iron fist, and renowned for its strictly enforced bedtime, enslaved workforce, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 804 million Deum Higleans 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, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order, Administration, and Education also on the agenda, while Welfare and Spirituality are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Berlin. The average income tax rate is 70.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Deum Higlean economy, worth 131 trillion Reichsmarks a year, is fairly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 162,943 Reichsmarks, with the richest citizens earning 5.1 times as much as the poorest.

Every new toxic waste dump comes with a seal of approval from the government's science advisor, oil executives can be seen reluctantly cleaning oil-soaked birds, gardeners must genetically test weeds for unique traits before digging them up, and it is considered unpatriotic to learn a foreign language. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Deum Higle's national animal is the Eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Deum Higle is ranked 71,823rd in the world and 3,255th in The North Pacific for Most Eco-Friendly Governments, scoring 823.15 on the Dolphin Recycling Awareness Index.
