The People's Republic of Der Internetstaat is a huge, orderly nation, renowned for its compulsory military service, digital currency, and enslaved workforce. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 617 million Internetstaats are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Education, Law & Order, and Administration are also considered important, while International Aid and Spirituality receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Manoolpolis. The average income tax rate is 66.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Internetstaatler economy, worth 79.5 trillion Bitcoins 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, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Book Publishing. 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 128,927 Bitcoins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.

The most commonly-worn shoes are concrete ones, electricity company executives pray nightly to Zeus and Thor, it's not just poseurs who wear oversized sound-cancelling headphones as they walk the city streets, and kids are told they can be whoever they want to be when they grow up. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Der Internetstaat's national animal is the Tribble, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Der Internetstaat is ranked 59,328th in the world and 2nd in Big Boii Empire for Most Authoritarian, with 908.04 milliStalins.
