The One Reality of Reich of the New World Order is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Archon Nirin Sschlass with an iron fist, and notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, ubiquitous missile silos, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 11.776 billion Desolators 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 medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Archona. The average income tax rate is 96.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Reich of the New World Orderian economy, worth a remarkable 4,715 trillion Reichsmarks 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, fairly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. 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 400,391 Reichsmarks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Bilingual Desolators are viewed with suspicion, citizens live in superstitious fear of the mysterious glowing clouds that float over Reich of the New World Order, the police double as repo men, and the police have reaffirmed their tough stance on drugs. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Reich of the New World Order's national animal is the Visceroid, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Cult of Nirin.

Reich of the New World Order is ranked 290,792nd in the world and 9,295th in Balder for Highest Unexpected Death Rate, scoring 20.97 on the Bus Surprisal Index.
