The Greater Shipgodian Reich of Shipgod is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Fuhrer Willhem II with an iron fist, and remarkable for its public floggings, enslaved workforce, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 3.129 billion Germans 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 medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Berlin. The average income tax rate is 59.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Imperial economy, worth 515 trillion Ship Dollars 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, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Tourism, and Retail. 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 164,691 Ship Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.

The leaders of Shipgod are given the nod by their predecessors, the government is a proud sponsor of the National Gaming Association, the government regularly reassures citizens that there are no monsters under their beds, and the 'sing-a-long with Fuhrer Willhem II' album is a popular souvenir. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Shipgod's national animal is the Shiper, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Fascist.

Shipgod is ranked 21,399th in the world and 1st in Imperial War Invaders for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 6,991.56 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
