Bewaffnete Krafte

Population6.643 billion

LeaderPresident Gottfried Schäffer


The Bundesrepublik of Bewaffnete Krafte is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by President Gottfried Schäffer with an iron fist, and remarkable for its infamous sell-swords, flagrant waste-dumping, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 6.643 billion Germans are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The large, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Industry, Law & Order, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Spirituality and Welfare aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bremen-Aim-Weser. The average income tax rate is 61.0%.

The frighteningly efficient German economy, worth 459 trillion Vereinsmarks a year, is quite specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 69,218 Vereinsmarks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.3 times as much as the poorest.

Slavery has been abolished, hospitals have to sell their computers on vBay in order to afford the ransomware decryption payments, a child's only Trickster Night scare is the sight of their parents dancing, and teenagers are making eye contact with each other for the first time in years. Crime, especially youth-related, is almost non-existent, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Bewaffnete Krafte's national animal is the Deutschesalder, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Protestantism.

Bewaffnete Krafte is ranked 74,169th in the world and 54th in Institute of Cellulose for Largest Mining Sector, scoring 4,296.61 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
