The XUmmrLanT of Kummerland is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Frau Mahlzahn o so ähnlich with an iron fist, and notable for its rum-swilling pirates, avowedly heterosexual populace, and complete lack of public education. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 19.533 billion Kummrlandians are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The relatively small, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Xummrlant. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 17.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Kummerlandian economy, worth a remarkable 2,019 trillion Lavas a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Uranium Mining, and Gambling. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 103,389 Lavas, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 648,851 per year while the poor average 6,961, a ratio of 93.2 to 1.

Pet owners want to know why their animals keep smiling at them, smog in Xummrlant is so bad that fresh air bottles are sold by street vendors, a massive campaign is underway to ensure the race of Kummerland remains pure, and the country is littered with broken homes. Crime is pervasive, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Kummerland's national animal is the Lindwurm, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Kummerland is ranked 58,507th in the world and 8th in Deutschland for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring 3,624.83 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
