The Eternal State of Neue Heilige Romischeck Reich is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Eternal Kaiser Josua Shultz I with an iron fist, and remarkable for its closed borders, digital currency, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 7.629 billion Römer 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 Education also on the agenda, while International Aid is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Letzte Rückzug. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 91.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Römisch economy, worth a remarkable 1,704 trillion Reich's Marks a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 223,468 Reich's Marks, with the richest citizens earning 7.8 times as much as the poorest.

Eternal Kaiser Josua Shultz I goes out to lunch surrounded by large men in dark glasses, one complaint of Neue Heilige Romischeck Reich's new periodic table is it's easy to confuse fearlessleaderium with gloriousleaderium, assault rifles sized for 7-year-olds are a frighteningly popular export, and tech-mad citizens think that the laser-powered bread-slicer uPhone App is the coolest thing since sliced bread. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Neue Heilige Romischeck Reich's national animal is the Römisch Eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is The Cult of Rückzug.

Neue Heilige Romischeck Reich is ranked 8,801st in the world and 9th in Novus Lucidum for Most Devout, with 2,172.7 Prayers Per Hour.
