The Metal Empire of Kampfgruppe 400 is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by The Metal God with an iron fist, and remarkable for its prohibition of alcohol, smutty television, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 38.474 billion Metalheads 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 juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Metalopolis. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Kampfgruppe 400ian economy, worth an astonishing 20,950 trillion imperiums a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Uranium Mining industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Woodchip Exports, and Automobile Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is a breathtaking 544,529 imperiums, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 3,140,430 per year while the poor average 45,151, a ratio of 69.6 to 1.

Children are expected to carve their own toys, government statistics suggest 115% of the population love The Metal God, the government's foreign policy statements are less threatening than a World Assembly cease-and-desist letter, and those who don't have a bean to spend don't know a bean about Brasilistanian coffee beans. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kampfgruppe 400's national animal is the shark, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Heavy Metal.

Kampfgruppe 400 is ranked 365th in the world and 1st in Viking Europe for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring 12,504.66 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
