The Workers' and Peasants' State of East Germany DDR is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Walter Ulbricht with an even hand, and renowned for its compulsory military service, state-planned economy, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate population of 7.45 billion East Germans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Berlin. The average income tax rate is 72.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but sluggish East German economy, worth 145 trillion DDMS a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Door-to-door Insurance Sales industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Gambling. Average income is 19,468 DDMS, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

State Atheism has been named as East Germany DDR's national religion, seats at the back of the bus are reserved for homosexuals, captains must wait until all rats are safe before jumping ship, and legislators must raise their hands if they want to speak. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. East Germany DDR's national animal is the Black Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is State Atheism.

East Germany DDR is ranked 153,729th in the world and 104th in Commonwealth of Liberty for Most Cultured, scoring 64 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
