The Soul-Crushing Factories of Wulfhelm is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Margrave Luther with an iron fist, and remarkable for its pith helmet sales, flagrant waste-dumping, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 34.721 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 aren't funded at all. 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 28,948 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 833,741 Marks, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 6,243,724 per year while the poor average 32,261, a ratio of 193 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 101,371st in the world and 7th in The Vast for Highest Drug Use, scoring 56 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
