The Constitutional Monarchy of United Reichs of Reitzmag is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by HM George I with an iron fist, and notable for its public floggings, prohibition of alcohol, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 3.479 billion Reitzmen are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The relatively small, corrupt, moralistic government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hampton City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 30.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Reitzmic economy, worth 643 trillion Pounds a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Gambling, and Retail. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 184,831 Pounds, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 973,641 per year while the poor average 18,697, a ratio of 52.1 to 1.

All astronauts are hot twenty-something models selected because they have 'the right stuff', criminals always seem to be forewarned of police raids, game show contestants scramble to fish trash out of the South Eagle Sea, and paper and ink publications are subsidised by the government to keep them in the black. Crime is pervasive, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. United Reichs of Reitzmag's national animal is the Eagle, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Roman Catholicism.

United Reichs of Reitzmag is ranked 1,953rd in the world and 3rd in European Union for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 973,642 Standard Monetary Units.
