Gandhi, revered for his positive political activism, considered the following traits to be the most spiritually perilous. In Eleventh Reich, they're considered virtues, which tells you almost everything you need to know about the recursion. Wealth without work. Pleasure without conscience. Science without humanity. Knowledge without character. Politics without principle. Commerce without morality. Worship without sacrifice.

In the Eleventh Reich, Germany won WWII and went on to create an empire that rules most of the 'planet'. It is typified by rampant military glorification, mandatory military enlistment, extreme racism, scientific research unrestrained by ethics or morality, fascination with biblicam magical talismans, and extreme paranoia in an environment where anyone could be called out as an enemy of the state for any reason.


What a Recursor Knows

  • The Eleventh Reich operates under the law of Mad Science and Magic, though the technology and magic that most natives see from day to day function at mid-twentieth-century levels.
  • Each citizen of Eleventh Reich has a military rank, which begins when children are inducted into the Nazi Youth at age seven, the "age of reason."
  • The Schutzstaffel (also known as the SS) operates outside the regular military and everyone fears them.
  • The SS sponsors superscience laboratories staffed with mad scientists, as well as hidden schools of magic where ritualists study relics and talismans collected from dead religions.
  • High-ranking Eleventh Reich officers can choose to "ascend" by undergoing a process that turns them into "Ubermensch," which are essentially undead cyborgs.
