Federal Germanic Empire

Population2.137 billion

LeaderPaul von Hindenburg


The Military Dictatorship of Federal Germanic Empire is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Paul von Hindenburg with an iron fist, and notable for its compulsory military service, pith helmet sales, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-working, cynical, devout population of 2.137 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 medium-sized, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order, Spirituality, and Industry are also considered important. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Munich. The average income tax rate is 31.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The strong German economy, worth 144 trillion Reichsmarks a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Uranium Mining industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is 67,598 Reichsmarks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

Christianity has been named as Federal Germanic Empire's national religion, airplanes have giant grilles on their noses to knock drones out of their path, retired racing eagles are served truffles for breakfast, and most believe it doesn't hurt to embrace free trade. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Federal Germanic Empire's national animal is the eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Christianity.

Federal Germanic Empire is ranked 81,602nd in the world and 17th in Selene for Most Subsidized Industry, scoring 1,262.74 on the Gilded Widget Scale.
