The Fractured State of Neue Heilige Romischeck Reich is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Eternal Kaiser Josua Shultz I with an iron fist, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, otherworldly petting zoo, and anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 9.418 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, Education, and Industry also on the agenda, while International Aid receives no funds. 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 2,274 trillion Reich's Marks a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Retail. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 241,464 Reich's Marks, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 692,313 per year while the poor average 67,006, a ratio of 10.3 to 1.

Builders spend more time negotiating "tasteful architecture" than on actual construction, major cities are suffering under water rationing, a National Academy regulates grammar and usage, and laser-wielding robots are taking aim at human hearts. 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 17,698th in the world and 3rd in Novus Lucidum for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 5,579.37 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
