The Dictatorship of Die Riech is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Ludwig with an iron fist, and renowned for its pith helmet sales, prohibition of alcohol, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 2.715 billion Riechians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government is dominated by the Department of Defense, although Law & Order is also considered important, while International Aid is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Berlin. The average income tax rate is 90.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Die Riechian economy, worth 303 trillion Richmarks a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Information Technology, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 111,679 Richmarks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation has always been at war with Moltovea, the nation's infamous boot camp is more brutal than most battlefields, vacationing Riechians expect to be treated as royalty, and policemen regularly conduct midnight raids on closed donut shops to 'collect evidence'. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Die Riech's national animal is the Wolf, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Die Riech is ranked 151,222nd in the world and 65th in Ridgefield for Fattest Citizens, with 7.1 Obesity Rate.
