Just a small note on something I picked up...
There's no life in the sea, but they have canned fish.
Either these cans are from the bygone era or it's fish coming from the many swiss lakes.

A few comments on the Episode 4 Chart O' Info:

On currency:
I'm not so sure the Yen lost value, rather it became equivalent to the dollar instead of roughly equivalent to the penny as it currently is (note that the change was 2 Yen 75 sen...cent perhaps?)
At least, that's what the fact that they can get a fraction of a Yen hints to me ( and to show off Noel's in-her-head computational skills...).

On the car:

It seems the Japanese standard of the driver on the Right side has been adopted in Helvetia, and "modern" vehicles reflect that.
As far as engine placement, I either chalk it up to (1) animator error or (2) a nod that the car is not an exact reproduction of said vehicle--in other words, just as Noel is doing her best to repair a Lost technology tank without a manual, the company that manufactures the Military's cars had a few pictures to go on but couldn't make an engine as size-efficient as the "original" technology of the 20th century, so had to put the engine in front.
I'd like to think it's the latter since the animators have gone out of their way to be so detail oriented.

Why do people have to be anal about vehicles and such?

I agree with Insert som, the '' Kubelwagon '' may be more liken to the VW '' Thing '' even though the bumper marking may be accurate, the Rifles seem to be Kar 98ks or maybe something that looks like it, small arms technology isn't really that advanced, And just because they have a " spider panzer ''
or '' Walking Panzer '' they don't have all the parts to repair it, so what use is it being there?

Also if there are other weapons in the tower, none have been shown yet.

Ahh one more observation, about food, just because there is no more '' Fish '' in the seas doesn't mean there's no fish, heck there are perhaps more types of fish in lakes and streams than one can count on their hands and toes. There are a pletora of fresh water fish that are quite edible.
