The T-810 of The First German Order is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by SkyNet with an iron fist, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, anti-smoking policies, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 5.629 billion Terminators 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 Education, Industry, and Administration also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Spirituality receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cheyenne Mountain Complex. The average income tax rate is 96.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Terminator economy, worth a remarkable 1,910 trillion Megabytes a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an amazing 339,372 Megabytes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.2 times as much as the poorest.

Death row inmates cower in fear at the phrase "one-year anniversary", scenic mountain valleys are flooded with water as damming projects get underway, the nation's orphanages and maternity wards have been nicknamed 'the Killbot Factories', and life-saving resuscitation is denied based on decades-old teenage diaries that declare "I want to die before I get old". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The First German Order's national animal is the HK-Tank, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Neural Net-Based Artificial Intelligence.

The First German Order is ranked 657th in the world and 18th in the Pacific for Largest Black Market, with 2,005 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
