Berlin and Hanover

Population2.705 billion

LeaderFriedrich Kraus

CurrencyDeutsche Mark

The Comrade of Berlin and Hanover is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Friedrich Kraus with an even hand, and renowned for its compulsory vegetarianism, soft-spoken computers, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.705 billion Berliners are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Berlin. The average income tax rate is 94.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Berliner economy, worth 465 trillion Deutsche Marks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 172,160 Deutsche Marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Hordes of unemployed lumberjacks have resorted to cutting down utility poles to satisfy their cravings, captains must wait until all rats are safe before jumping ship, urban graffiti is hand-calligraphed in perfectly kerned elegant fonts, and tabloids publicly shun nurses for not calling home on the weekends. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Berlin and Hanover's national animal is the Bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Yahlism.

Berlin and Hanover is ranked 243,453rd in the world and 956th in Europe for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring -8.62 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
