The Blood and Iron Kingdom of Kampf Empire is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Kaiser Calvin III with an even hand, and renowned for its sprawling nuclear power plants, unlimited-speed roads, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed population of 2.196 billion Kampfians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized, corrupt government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Education, Industry, and Law & Order also on the agenda, while International Aid and Spirituality receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Neue Königsberg. The average income tax rate is 89.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Kampf Empirean economy, worth 524 trillion Marcks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Retail. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 238,955 Marcks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

Many believe that Kaiser Calvin III's head is big enough for the sun to orbit around it, people are more interested in gossip about the private lives of politicians than their policies, holidaymakers sleep curled up on the floor as hotel beds are replaced with oversized bookcases, and the nation's soldiers sleep four to a bed in order to use space economically. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kampf Empire's national animal is the Kampf Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Tırism.

Kampf Empire is ranked 8,649th in the world and 199th in The East Pacific for Highest Average Tax Rates, with 89.48 Effective Tax Rate.
