The Military-Industrial Complex of Limburgi is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Orioni with an iron fist, and renowned for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, compulsory military service, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 23.071 billion Limburgians are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The tiny, corrupt, pro-business, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Law & Order and Industry also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Environment are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of O'polis. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Limburgian economy, worth a remarkable 7,296 trillion IONS a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Automobile Manufacturing, and Gambling. Average income is an amazing 316,276 IONS, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,939,708 per year while the poor average 3,134, a ratio of 937 to 1.

Politicians stage photo ops featuring barely functional fighter jets, young children are learning advanced physics to scientifically disprove the existence of Santa Claus, the diplomatic corps tends to open negotiations by insulting all the foreigners in the room, and the military is on a massive recruiting drive in advance of an invasion of Brasilistan. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Limburgi's national animal is the democratic socialist, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Orioni.

Limburgi is ranked 1,654th in the world and 6th in Eurth for Highest Average Incomes, with 316,276.42 Standard Monetary Units.
