The Democratic Federation of Grosseschnauzer is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Her Schnauzer Highness Kinderlieb III with a fair hand, and renowned for its national health service, anti-smoking policies, and daily referendums. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 25.461 billion schnauzervolken hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.
The minute government, or what there is of one, is solely concerned with Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Federal District. Income tax is unheard of.
The frighteningly efficient schnauzervolker economy, worth a remarkable 6,155 trillion schnauzermarks a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Uranium Mining, and Tourism. Average income is an amazing 241,743 schnauzermarks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.
Crowds of flag-burning protesters tend to accidentally become crowds of burning protesters, Grosseschnauzer is notorious for its citizens' infidelity, morning coffees are no longer the same since the disappearance of newspapers, and construction of the Really Big Hadron Collider is underway. Crime, especially youth-related, is pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. Grosseschnauzer's national animal is the wild schnauzer, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.
