The ✠ Grand Empire ✠ of Friently is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Emperor Bryan von Friently-Hannover VII with an iron fist, and renowned for its zero percent divorce rate, public floggings, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 2.642 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 large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is dominated by the Department of Defense, although Law & Order and Education are also considered important, while Spirituality and International Aid are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Imperial Münich. The average income tax rate is 68.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Imperial Friently economy, worth 308 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 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 an impressive 116,945 ReichsEuros, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Wood-framed catapults are ready to launch diseased corpses into besieged cities, children are often punished for the sins of the fathers, citizens are barcoded to keep track of their movements, and dealers go from pushing drugs to pushing up daisies. 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, and its national religion is Realism.

Friently is ranked 79,348th in the world and 3,911th in The North Pacific for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 531.61 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
