The Queen's State of Polizeistaat is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by The Governor with an iron fist, and remarkable for its state-planned economy, compulsory military service, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 15.849 billion Polizeistaatians 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 enormous, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Spirituality. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Capital Heights. The average income tax rate is 53.3%.

The strong Polizeistaatian economy, worth 614 trillion betales a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, quite specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Tourism, and Furniture Restoration. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 38,762 betales, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.7 times as much as the poorest.

The arms industry is backed by government subsidies and harsh anti-protest laws are in place, there's a shortage of swinging hot spots as land development grinds to a halt, the government has the power to seize property at will, and large areas of Polizeistaat are not accessible by the public. Crime, especially youth-related, is almost non-existent, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Polizeistaat's national animal is the deer, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is none.

Polizeistaat is ranked 200,863rd in the world and 8th in Tbilisi for Rudest Citizens, with 17.16 Insults Per Minute.
