The Metal Empire of Kampfgruppe 400 is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by The Metal God with an iron fist, and renowned for its strictly enforced bedtime, zero percent divorce rate, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 40.665 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 22,159 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 544,926 imperiums, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 3,126,552 per year while the poor average 45,726, a ratio of 68.4 to 1.

Police frequently raid drugstores in search of contraband bottles of New Spice aftershave, cleaners are very careful not to bump into the big red button on The Metal God's desk, cooking with water and baking soda is considered patent infringement, and the arms industry is backed by government subsidies and harsh anti-protest laws are in place. 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 269,636th in the world and 8th in Viking Europe for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -1926.19 on the Hayek Index.
