The Socialist Federal Republic of Reichinburg is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Federal President Samantha Neeson with an iron fist, and renowned for its complete lack of prisons, vat-grown people, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 2.033 billion Reichinburgians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Volkisburg. The average income tax rate is 91.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Reichinburgian economy, worth 302 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 a large, well-organized, fairly diversified black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, 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 impressive 148,999 Reichsmarks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A fashion designer has been arrested for inciting hatred after claiming redheads couldn't pull off vermillion, anti-environmentalist dissidents must beware of government plants in their midst, Federal President Samantha Neeson's relatives have been married into the royal families of foreign nations against their will, and high school boys are required to pass vigorous self-mastery and sensitivity training to graduate. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Reichinburg's national animal is the Eagle, which can occasionally be seen dodging aircraft in the nation's cities.

Reichinburg is ranked 93,757th in the world and 60th in The Socialist Syndicalist Union for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 56.1 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
