Regional Influence: Hermit


The Ruling Council Dignitary of Ferdinand Schafer is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its state-planned economy, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The cynical population of 9.058 billion Enlightened Fascists are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Law & Order, and Education. The average income tax rate is 67.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but sluggish Ferdinand Schaferian economy, worth 228 trillion Imperial Marks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Beef-Based Agriculture industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Uranium Mining, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is 25,213 Imperial Marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Elections have been outlawed, scientists regularly clone human beings for research purposes, and punitive tariffs protect local industry. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ferdinand Schafer's national animal is the Silver Fox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Ferdinand Schafer is ranked 224,262nd in the world and 1st in The Imperial Ministry of Truth for Most Developed, scoring 47.67 on the Human Development Index.
