Remnants of Exilvania

Population16.023 billion

LeaderDietrich Ekerhart Haegler
Faiththe Seasons of Nichts


The Dictatorship of Remnants of Exilvania is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Dietrich Ekerhart Haegler with an iron fist, and renowned for its rampant corporate plagiarism, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and triple-decker prams. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 16.023 billion Exilvanians 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, with Education, Public Transport, and Administration also on the agenda, while Social Policy and International Aid are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Schreckensburg. The average income tax rate is 96.5%.

The enormous but inefficient Remnants of Exilvanian economy, worth a remarkable 3,966 trillion ExMarks a year, is mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, Woodchip Exports, and Information Technology. Average income is an amazing 247,548 ExMarks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

Selling your granddad's clothes requires an incredible amount of paperwork, mechanics are often exhausted by their work, the fate of the world literally rests on Dietrich Ekerhart Haegler's fingers, and denied drugs and entertainment the nation's youth are taking to petty crime to alleviate their boredom. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. Remnants of Exilvania's national animal is the Vampirfledermaus, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is the Seasons of Nichts.

Remnants of Exilvania is ranked 16,478th in the world and 5th in BLITZKRIEG for Smartest Citizens, with 70.2 quips per hour.
