The Soviet Union of Konig Empire is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Karl Ernst Gerat with an iron fist, and renowned for its compulsory military service, state-planned economy, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 3.359 billion Konigans 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 large, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Education, Administration, and Law & Order also on the agenda, while Spirituality is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Maraïla. The average income tax rate is 95.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Konigan economy, worth 549 trillion Konig Marks 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 slick, highly efficient, quite specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Uranium Mining. 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 impressive 163,554 Konig Marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The military is slashing spending on conventional arms and diverting it to spending on prosthetic arms, the government regularly publishes lengthy reports on its own excessive recordkeeping, internet moderators work overtime to remove memes comparing Karl Ernst Gerat to cartoon bears, and it takes a village to catch a criminal. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Konig Empire's national animal is the drunk russian, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Konig Empire is ranked 294,224th in the world and 99th in Anime Nations Against Liberals for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring -13.49 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
