The Thousand Years of The Steel Helmets is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by the Reichskanzler with an iron fist, and renowned for its compulsory military service, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 14.254 billion Steel Helmetsians 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 large, 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 Stahlhelmia. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 90.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Steel Helmetsian economy, worth a remarkable 2,367 trillion reichsmarks a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Woodchip Exports, and Automobile Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 166,064 reichsmarks, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 773,299 per year while the poor average 21,389, a ratio of 36.2 to 1.

A stocking with a crooked seam or a tie without a full Windsor knot are grounds for instant dismissal, gossip magazines are more interested in astrological stars than celebrity ones, blind students are at a disadvantage now that test papers printed in braille have been discontinued, and citizens know not to ask what their country can do for them but what they can do as chained slaves for their country. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Steel Helmets's national animal is the eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Mysticism.

The Steel Helmets is ranked 6,775th in the world and 14th in Nazi Europa for Highest Economic Output, with 2,367 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
