The Holy Empire of New Tussia is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Anton Schmidt I with an iron fist, and remarkable for its public floggings, infamous sell-swords, and triple-decker prams. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 10.157 billion Tussians 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, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Education, Administration, and Law & Order also on the agenda, while International Aid isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Neues Konstantinopel. The average income tax rate is 97.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Tussian economy, worth a remarkable 2,097 trillion Tussian Dollars a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 206,517 Tussian Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.9 times as much as the poorest.

Life expectancies inside correctional facilities vastly exceed the national average, hiding wrinkles with make-up is illegal, Anton Schmidt I's family members carry literal get-out-of-jail-free cards, and wood-framed catapults are ready to launch diseased corpses into besieged cities. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. New Tussia's national animal is the Black Wolf, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Tussian Orthodox Church.

New Tussia is ranked 256,697th in the world and 207th in Lands End for Largest Pizza Delivery Sector, scoring -25.31 on the Pepperoni Propulsion Productivity Index.
