Berlin and Potsdam

Population170 million


The Commonwealth of Berlin and Potsdam is a very large, genial nation, notable for its aversion to nipples, otherworldly petting zoo, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 170 million Berlin and Potsdamians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small, liberal government prioritizes Education, with Welfare, Administration, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Law & Order aren't funded at all. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 10.3%.

The very strong Berlin and Potsdamian economy, worth 10.1 trillion Euros a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Gambling, Book Publishing, and Uranium Mining. Average income is 59,570 Euros, with the richest citizens earning 8.8 times as much as the poorest.

Scenic mountain valleys are flooded with water as damming projects get underway, government officials frequently cut taxes as a distraction from antics with their secretaries, collisions between bicycles and carnival floats are on the rise, and convicted murderers are free to walk the streets provided they attend rehabilitation classes. Crime is moderate, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Berlin and Potsdam's national animal is the Bear.

Berlin and Potsdam is ranked 179,176th in the world and 961st in Europe for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring -3.66 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
