|Leader||Kaiser Wilhelm VIII|
The Kaiserreich of Wilhelms is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Kaiser Wilhelm VIII with an iron fist, and notable for its public floggings, strictly enforced bedtime, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 4.701 billion Wilhelmsians 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 prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order, Industry, and Administration also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Welfare receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Berlin. The average income tax rate is 59.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Wilhelmsian economy, worth a remarkable 1,046 trillion Marks 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 222,707 Marks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.
Foreign governments are looking into weaponizing the infamous Wilhelmsian bee, sleep-deprived officials are known to collapse after late night revision for their examinations, knitters are arrested for carrying needles in their bags, and birds and children's kites are regularly brought down by anti-aircraft fire. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Wilhelms's national animal is the Imperial Eagle, which is also the nation's favorite main course.
