The Nomadic Peoples of Kriegiersien is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Timey with an even hand, and remarkable for its digital currency, keen interest in outer space, and enforced nudity. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 16.695 billion Kriegiersiens have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized, corrupt government prioritizes Defense, although Education, Healthcare, and Administration are also considered important, while Spirituality and International Aid receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Schoenwetter. The average income tax rate is 90.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Kriegiersienian economy, worth a remarkable 7,363 trillion shiny things a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Tourism, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 441,051 shiny things, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Breast milk is being redistributed from each according to their ability to each according to their need, preschools put children down for naps with milk, cookies, and a gruesome story of vengeance, private pharmacies close down as medicinal drugs are given away freely by the government, and science centers and state of the art laboratories are ubiquitous. Crime is totally unknown. Kriegiersien's national animal is the scorpion, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Kriegiersien is ranked 279th in the world and 7th in Balder for Highest Poor Incomes, with 313,539.42 Standard Monetary Units.
