The Resurrected Empire of The Legion of Mankind is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Otto Schmidt with an iron fist, and notable for its zero percent divorce rate, public floggings, and unlimited-speed roads. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 5.857 billion Legionnaires 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, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Berlin. The average income tax rate is 68.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Legionnaire economy, worth a remarkable 1,425 trillion Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Uranium Mining. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 243,339 Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The study of quantum physics has been outlawed for fear of accidentally causing the end of the world, girls in elementary school classes gaze longingly at boys playing tag, if you go into the woods today you're sure of a big surprise, and it is unwise to be a poet even if things rhyme and you don't know it. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Legion of Mankind's national animal is the Eagle, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Ottoism.

The Legion of Mankind is ranked 32,118th in the world and 51st in The League of Conservative Nations for Largest Retail Industry, scoring 5,444.65 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
