The Holy of Angie Merkel is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Mary Bee Cuddy with a fair hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 5.258 billion Angie Merkelians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The tiny, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Leyenburg. The average income tax rate is 1.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Angie Merkelian economy, worth a remarkable 1,567 trillion Queendom marks a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Retail, Tourism, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an amazing 298,087 Queendom marks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

Armed war-criminals gain asylum if deemed 'fabulous' enough, bailiffs must face down a fusillade of depleted uranium rounds, wars of expansion are described as "peacekeeping operations", and stone wrist watches that weigh 20lb are the latest trend. Crime is totally unknown. Angie Merkel's national animal is the Cow, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Spirits of men.

Angie Merkel is ranked 237,958th in the world and 1,048th in Europe for Highest Unexpected Death Rate, scoring 21.01 on the Bus Surprisal Index.
