The Confederation of Maschinenbau is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Solomon Albrecht von Arnhart with an iron fist, and notable for its zero percent divorce rate, ubiquitous missile silos, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 1.731 billion Maschinenbauans 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 large, corrupt government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order, Administration, and Education also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Social Policy aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Stahlberg. The average income tax rate is 78.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Maschinenbauan economy, worth 266 trillion Schraubemarks a year, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 153,980 Schraubemarks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

The old neighbourhood isn't how most Maschinenbauans remember it, the nation has welcomed its expats back with open arms, prospective secessionists nervously declare how worthless and unimportant they are, and party affiliation is just as irrelevant as campaign promises. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Maschinenbau's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Kulterhaltung.

Maschinenbau is ranked 232,960th in the world and 109th in Social Technocratic Union for Most Primitive, scoring -333.6 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
