The Realm of Cimmerien is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Emperor Matthias VIII with an iron fist, and remarkable for its compulsory military service, keen interest in outer space, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 9.575 billion Cimmerians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dinsmark. The average income tax rate is 90.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Cimmerian economy, worth a remarkable 1,453 trillion Marks a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Basket Weaving. Average income is an impressive 151,848 Marks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

Stolen Reuben sandwiches are met with detailed and thorough police investigations, women complaining about lack of opportunity are told to "man up", demand for gourmet white truffles is on the rise, and the nation's navy has been named the scourge of the seven thousand seas. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Cimmerien's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Church of Cimmeria.

Cimmerien is ranked 10,819th in the world and 614th in The North Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 89.25 on the Human Development Index.
