The Grand Duchy of Thuringen Hesse is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Argor Blackfyre with an iron fist, and notable for its museums and concert halls, complete lack of prisons, and otherworldly petting zoo. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 1.409 billion Thuringen Hesseans 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 Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of IronHold. The average income tax rate is 57.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Thuringen Hessean economy, worth 224 trillion Marks a year, is led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Trout Farming. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 159,601 Marks, with the richest citizens earning 5.1 times as much as the poorest.

Businessmen walk out of meetings halfway because their shift is over, nephews and nieces of the monarch resort to begging from relatives in palace halls, wind farms are erected on shuttered oil platforms, and space shuttles are lying silent on the runway till the Space Agency can work out how to fit a creche and a meditation room into their next spacecraft. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Thuringen Hesse's national animal is the Wyvern, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Thuringen Hesse is ranked 26,059th in the world and 292nd in 10000 Islands for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 2,561.38 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
