The Ruling Council Dignitary of Ferdinand Schafer is a colossal, safe nation, renowned for its state-planned economy, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The cynical population of 9.228 billion Enlightened Fascists 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, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Law & Order, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 67.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but sluggish Ferdinand Schaferian economy, worth 232 trillion Imperial Marks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Beef-Based Agriculture industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Arms Manufacturing, and Uranium Mining. Average income is 25,213 Imperial Marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Elections have been outlawed, scientists regularly clone human beings for research purposes, and punitive tariffs protect local industry. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ferdinand Schafer's national animal is the Silver Fox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Ferdinand Schafer is ranked 70,516th in the world and 1st in The Imperial Ministry of Truth for Highest Economic Output, with 232 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
