The ✠ Grand Empire ✠ of Friently is a huge, orderly nation, ruled by Emperor Bryan von Friently-Hannover VII with an iron fist, and remarkable for its strictly enforced bedtime, public floggings, and national health service. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 803 million Imperial Citizens 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 is effectively ruled by the Department of Defense, with Law & Order and Administration also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Social Policy receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Imperial Münich. The average income tax rate is 52.4%.

The strong Imperial Friently economy, worth 63.4 trillion ReichsEuros 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 large, well-organized, quite specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, 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 78,996 ReichsEuros, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.1 times as much as the poorest.

Economic output is rising as the chronically depressed are persuaded not to burden society, phone taps are frequently carried out by the police, most of the military's funding goes into researching space-age weaponry, and the government seizes the property of the recently deceased. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Friently's national animal is the German Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Friently is ranked 146,420th in the world and 7,869th in The North Pacific for Largest Retail Industry, scoring -7.94 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
