The German Principality of Reserka is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Princess Andrea Hohenzollern with an iron fist, and renowned for its smutty television, absence of drug laws, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 15.175 billion Reserkans are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Defense, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Warsaw. The average income tax rate is 75.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Reserkan economy, worth a remarkable 2,554 trillion Monols a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, quite specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing and Information Technology. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 168,305 Monols, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Ambitious "businessmen" use their children to sell and advertise their products, the combined alert sound of a nation simultaneously receiving a text message is a common cause of hearing damage, tax revenue is often intercepted by international accountants before ever seeing the national treasury, and the nation's universities are often mistaken for foreign embassies. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Reserka's national animal is the Swordfish, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Christianity.

Reserka is ranked 127,665th in the world and 6th in The Mainland of Tamriel for Most Extreme, scoring 16.51 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
