The Dictatorship of Walter Heisenberg is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Heisenberg with an iron fist, and notable for its deadly medical pandemics, free-roaming dinosaurs, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 16.804 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, with Law & Order, Education, and Industry also on the agenda, 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 6,041 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 359,512 ounces, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,585,803 per year while the poor average 51,074, a ratio of 31.0 to 1.

Every new toxic waste dump comes with a seal of approval from the government's science advisor, the nation's new currency features full-length portraits of Heisenberg in ermine and velvet garb, several inches are being added to first class seating, and money grows on trees. 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 213th in the world and 6th in The East Pacific for Fattest Citizens, with 92.88 Obesity Rate.
