South Acren

The Militaristic Reich of South Acren is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Kaiser Erik Richter with an iron fist, and renowned for its state-planned economy, free-roaming dinosaurs, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 3.9 billion Germans 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 Law & Order, Industry, and Education also on the agenda. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Berlin. The average income tax rate is 95.8%.

The frighteningly efficient South Acrenian economy, worth a remarkable 1,228 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, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Uranium Mining, 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 amazing 314,916 Reichsmarks, with the richest citizens earning 6.9 times as much as the poorest.

Colonial citizens are forced to sing the praise of the "Great South Acrenian Liberator", the nation's orphanages and maternity wards have been nicknamed 'the Killbot Factories', consumption of cat memes has skyrocketed, and the hills are alive with the smell of burning flesh. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. South Acren's national animal is the Wolf, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is The Four Horsemen of The Apocalypse.

South Acren is ranked 50,666th in the world and 1,869th in the Rejected Realms for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 2,436.08 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
