The Omnipresent Empire of South Acren is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Kaiser Erik Richter with an iron fist, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, unlimited-speed roads, and otherworldly petting zoo. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 7.324 billion Germans 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 effectively ruled by the Department of Defense, with Law & Order and Industry also on the agenda. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Berlin. The average income tax rate is 98.5%.

The frighteningly efficient South Acrenian economy, worth a remarkable 3,432 trillion Cybermarcks a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing and Information Technology. Average income is an amazing 468,607 Cybermarcks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

The military is blowing up any threat to employment within the nation, the military invades any neighboring nation with the gall to criticize its policies, vacationing Germans expect to be treated as royalty, and historical commemorations regularly devolve into militaristic jingoism. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. South Acren's national animal is the Wolf, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Christianity.

South Acren is ranked 5,310th in the world and 7th in Confederacy of Layem for Most Developed, scoring 93.7 on the Human Development Index.
