The Soul-Crushing Factories of Wulfhelm is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Margrave Luther with an iron fist, and notable for its deadly medical pandemics, flagrant waste-dumping, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 39.559 billion Wulfens 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, pro-business, well-organized government, or what there is of one, prioritizes Industry, with Defense and Law & Order also on the agenda, while Environment and Welfare receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lothangross. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Wulfhelmian economy, worth an astonishing 33,416 trillion Marks a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Automobile Manufacturing, and Uranium Mining. Average income is a breathtaking 844,726 Marks, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 7,913,467 per year while the poor average 7,582, a ratio of 1,043 to 1.

A National Academy regulates grammar and usage, scenic tours are unheard of after most environmental laws were abolished, prices fluctuate manically for no fathomable reason, and citizens have reported seeing strange rays of light emanating from the moon. Crime is all-pervasive, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Wulfhelm's national animal is the Wild Boar, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Neo Lutheran.

Wulfhelm is ranked 148th in the world and 2nd in The Vast for Largest Populations, with 39.6 billion Capita.
