The Reich Line

LeaderPorter Achim Schwarz


The Dictatorship of The Reich Line is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Porter Achim Schwarz with an iron fist, and notable for its ubiquitous missile silos, keen interest in outer space, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 1.416 billion Reichslanders are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The medium-sized, corrupt, socially-minded, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order, Education, and Administration also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Welfare aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Rommel Complex. The average income tax rate is 68.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Reicher economy, worth 162 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 a slick, highly efficient, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. 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 impressive 114,578 Reichsmarks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

There's a lot of mouth-breathers about these days, the government extracts trade concessions from poor nations in exchange for humanitarian aid, preschools put children down for naps with milk, cookies, and a gruesome story of vengeance, and fifteen-year-olds cannot walk younger siblings to school without a professional Childcare and Education Certificate. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Reich Line's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

The Reich Line is ranked 103,324th in the world and 196th in Thaecia for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 123.31 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
