The Finders keep it of Neuer Deutsches Reich is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Kaiser Wilhelm IV von Hohenzollern with an iron fist, and renowned for its closed borders, digital currency, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 3.548 billion Deutschers 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 is dominated by the Department of Defense, with Education, Law & Order, and Industry also on the agenda, while Environment and International Aid receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Germania. The average income tax rate is 81.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Neuer Deutsches Reichian economy, worth a remarkable 1,204 trillion Reichsmarks 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, and Uranium Mining. 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 339,616 Reichsmarks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.3 times as much as the poorest.

Scientists are researching the best way to kill off humanity to prevent catastrophic war, rumour has it Kaiser Wilhelm IV von Hohenzollern needs a calculator to multiply ten by ten, weapons produced by newly nationalized armaments factories have been found to contain sawdust instead of gunpowder, and citizens live in superstitious fear of the mysterious glowing clouds that float over Neuer Deutsches Reich. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Neuer Deutsches Reich's national animal is the Reichsadler, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Christianity and Yatoism.

Neuer Deutsches Reich is ranked 39,225th in the world and 888th in the Pacific for Rudest Citizens, with 76.58 Insults Per Minute.
