The Galactic empire of Neuer Deutsches Reich is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Kaiser Wilhelm IV von Hohenzollern with an iron fist, and notable for its deadly medical pandemics, state-planned economy, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 3.142 billion Deutschers 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 medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is dominated by the Department of Defense, although Education, Law & Order, and Industry are also considered important, while Environment and International Aid are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Germania. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 75.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Neuer Deutsches Reichian economy, worth 980 trillion Reichmarcks 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, 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 amazing 312,162 Reichmarcks, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,018,715 per year while the poor average 71,957, a ratio of 14.2 to 1.

Politicians are often seen with soldiers pointing guns at their heads, citizens are grown in vats, all telephone traffic is monitored for 'national security reasons', and cleaners are very careful not to bump into the big red button on Kaiser Wilhelm IV von Hohenzollern's desk. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Neuer Deutsches Reich's national animal is the Reichsadler, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Christianity and Yatoism.

Neuer Deutsches Reich is ranked 50,055th in the world and 1,939th in the Pacific for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 3,765.64 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
