The Metal Empire of Kampfgruppe 400 is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by The Metal God with an iron fist, and notable for its pith helmet sales, compulsory military service, and parental licensing program. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 37.63 billion Metalheads 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 juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Metalopolis. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Kampfgruppe 400ian economy, worth an astonishing 20,495 trillion imperiums a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Uranium Mining industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Woodchip Exports, and Automobile Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is a breathtaking 544,670 imperiums, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 3,174,078 per year while the poor average 44,079, a ratio of 72.0 to 1.

The government terminates employment with extreme prejudice, unfit police officers collapse while trying to capture unusually athletic criminals, every microwave and toaster is being disassembled and probed by inspectors, and all footpaths have tollbooths. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kampfgruppe 400's national animal is the shark, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Heavy Metal.

Kampfgruppe 400 is ranked 230,269th in the world and 8th in Viking Europe for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with 3.78 Tourists Per Hour.
