|Leader||Dietrich Ekerhart Haegler|
The Capital of Exilvania of Schreckensburg is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Dietrich Ekerhart Haegler with an iron fist, and remarkable for its compulsory military service, state-planned economy, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 14.715 billion Schreckensburgians 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 government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, well-organized morass — juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Law & Order, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Schreckensfeste. The average income tax rate is 86.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The large but inefficient Schreckensburgian economy, worth 688 trillion ExMarks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining. Average income is 46,783 ExMarks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Businesses have become paranoid as waves of lawsuits sweep the nation, mining is the nation's most dangerous occupation, a major religion has been named as Schreckensburg's national religion, and Dietrich Ekerhart Haegler has been self-declared as the Most Supreme Magnificent Overlord of Everything You Ever Saw. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Schreckensburg's national animal is the Vampirfledermaus, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
