The Colonial Empire of The Legion of Mankind is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Otto Schmidt with an iron fist, and remarkable for its complete lack of prisons, sprawling nuclear power plants, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 6.241 billion Legionnaires 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 Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Berlin. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 69.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Legionnaire economy, worth a remarkable 1,598 trillion Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 256,122 Dollars, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,285,093 per year while the poor average 28,599, a ratio of 44.9 to 1.

Citizens who fail to follow the official national religion are executed, panels from bankrupt rooftop solar companies are used as props for sci-fi B-movies, among slaves 'bastard' is an honorific rather than an insult, and money can't buy love but mercy is entirely negotiable. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Legion of Mankind's national animal is the Golden Eagle, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Ottoism.

The Legion of Mankind is ranked 20,856th in the world and 2nd in Monarchist and Democratic Alliance for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 44.93 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
