The Socialist Stratocracy of East Germanic Countries is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Generalissimus Kress O'Shae with an iron fist, and remarkable for its parental licensing program, irreverence towards religion, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, cynical population of 3.969 billion East Germans are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Düsselein. The average income tax rate is 63.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse East German economy, worth 450 trillion Eastern Marks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, fairly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Tourism, and Book Publishing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 113,517 Eastern Marks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Police are arresting costumed characters at comic book conventions, devotion to God is only skin-deep, the government is a proud sponsor of the National Gaming Association, and politicians cheer the nation's surging death rate. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. East Germanic Countries's national animal is the Black Raven, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Vedulism.

East Germanic Countries is ranked 22,253rd in the world and 9th in KAISERREICH for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 2,917.06 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
