The Holy Empire of Eisenfall is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Emperor Maximilian Reinhardt von Jaeger with an iron fist, and remarkable for its smutty television, sprawling nuclear power plants, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, cynical, devout population of 4.159 billion Eisenfallians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The enormous, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Posen. The average income tax rate is 93.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Eisenfallian economy, worth 576 trillion imperials a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 138,701 imperials, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.6 times as much as the poorest.

Sending sick politicians "Get Well Soon" cards is considered bribery, people say chess victor Emperor Maximilian Reinhardt von Jaeger can kill you with mind-bullets, new pilots are regularly reminded that they are more expendable than their planes, and the government has stated an intention to min-max its stats for 'teh pwnage'. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Eisenfall's national animal is the black bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is God-Emperorism.

Eisenfall is ranked 158,518th in the world and 8,179th in The North Pacific for Most Armed, with 0.12 Weapons Per Person.
