The Wartime Empire of Reborn Empire of Ulm is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Emperor Siegfried Von Drachenritter with an iron fist, and renowned for its frequent executions, otherworldly petting zoo, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 3.489 billion Ulmians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order, Education, and Industry also on the agenda, while International Aid and Social Policy aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Gramstadt. The average income tax rate is 98.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Ulmian economy, worth 869 trillion Imperial Coins a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 249,311 Imperial Coins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Strange lights seen in the sky are officially regarded as weather balloons or hoaxes and nothing else, truancy officers have a hard time catching children trained in advanced camouflage skills, laser-wielding robots are taking aim at human hearts, and the entire retail industry has been replaced by online delivery services. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Reborn Empire of Ulm's national animal is the Great Wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Empire's Pantheon.

Reborn Empire of Ulm is ranked 202,098th in the world and 104th in Kantrias for Largest Retail Industry, scoring -6.24 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
