The Military Dictatorship of Sethtekia is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Reichsmarshall Dølf Krieg with an iron fist, and remarkable for its flagrant waste-dumping, public floggings, and zero percent divorce rate. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 7.363 billion Sethtekians 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 primarily concerned with Defense, with Law & Order, Industry, and Spirituality also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Welfare aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Carpathia. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 82.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Sethtekian economy, worth a remarkable 1,933 trillion Reichsmarks a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, Woodchip Exports, and Information Technology. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 262,604 Reichsmarks, with the richest citizens earning 5.5 times as much as the poorest.

Skateboarding is punishable by heavy fines, lending money has become a major liability, the price of takeaway food quadruples after 6pm, and drowning sailors are hung out to dry. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sethtekia's national animal is the Imperial Eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Templaric Christianity.

Sethtekia is ranked 4,279th in the world and 1st in The Holy Reich of Greater Germania for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 576,007.08 Standard Monetary Units.
