The Nomadic Peoples of Kriegiersien is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Timey with an iron fist, and renowned for its rampant corporate plagiarism, public floggings, and state-planned economy. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 19.007 billion Kriegiersiens are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The medium-sized, corrupt government prioritizes Defense, with Education, Healthcare, and Administration also on the agenda, while Spirituality and International Aid are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Schoenwetter. The average income tax rate is 99.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Kriegiersienian economy, worth an astonishing 10,304 trillion shiny things 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 an enormous, deeply entrenched, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Tourism, and Book Publishing. 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 a breathtaking 542,121 shiny things, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Kriegiersiens submit requests for a date in writing with an enclosed RSVP card, meat-eating is frowned upon, pocket calculators are seen as status symbols for the ostentatiously wealthy, and the government sends submarines to retrieve bodies from shipwrecked submarines. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Kriegiersien's national animal is the scorpion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Kriegiersien is ranked 38,266th in the world and 1,497th in Balder for Most Armed, with 2.21 weapons per person.
