The ✠ Grand Empire ✠ of Friently is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Emperor Bryan von Friently-Hannover VII with an iron fist, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, parental licensing program, and avant-garde cinema. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 7.948 billion 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 medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is effectively ruled by the Department of Defense, although Law & Order is also considered important, while International Aid and Spirituality receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Imperial Münich. The average income tax rate is 92.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Imperial Friently economy, worth a remarkable 2,302 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 an enormous, deeply entrenched black market in Arms Manufacturing and Information Technology. 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 amazing 289,746 ReichsEuros, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

The nation's soldiers sleep four to a bed in order to use space economically, children are often punished for the sins of the fathers, soldiers' positions are given away by the glint of their bayonets, and ghost regiments exist only on paper. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable 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, and its national religion is The Twin Angels.

Friently is ranked 72,458th in the world and 3,506th in The North Pacific for Most Valuable International Artwork, with 1.01 Bank.
