The Colonial Empire of The Legion of Mankind is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Otto Schmidt with an iron fist, and renowned for its prohibition of alcohol, enslaved workforce, and ritual sacrifices. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 6.225 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 68.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Legionnaire economy, worth a remarkable 1,579 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 253,660 Dollars, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,368,540 per year while the poor average 24,398, a ratio of 56.1 to 1.

The "Dreadnowt" is the pride and joy of the Legionnaire Navy, sleep-deprived officials are known to collapse after late night revision for their examinations, homeowners are evicted to make way for new runways, and restaurants are required to specify whether their toilet paper was made in The Legion of Mankind. 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 16,299th in the world and 6th in Monarchist and Democratic Alliance for Most Developed, scoring 86.11 on the Human Development Index.
