The Dictatorship of Walter Heisenberg is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Heisenberg with an iron fist, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies, sprawling nuclear power plants, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 16.846 billion Walter Heisenbergians 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 minute, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government, or what there is of one, prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order, Education, and Industry are also considered important, while Welfare and Environment receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Walter Heisenberg City. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Walter Heisenbergian economy, worth a remarkable 6,049 trillion ounces a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an amazing 359,081 ounces, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,597,952 per year while the poor average 50,219, a ratio of 31.8 to 1.

Heisenberg is described as an everyday person with normal tastes and the usual interests, the moon's craters are more numerous every day, policemen regularly conduct midnight raids on closed donut shops to 'collect evidence', and the government is suspected of mass disappearing dissidents both at home and abroad. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. Walter Heisenberg's national animal is the badger, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Heisenberg.

Walter Heisenberg is ranked 13,100th in the world and 359th in The East Pacific for Largest Governments, scoring 30.64 on the Bureaucratic Comprehensiveness Rating Scale Index.
