The ✠ Grand Empire ✠ of Friently is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Emperor Bryan von Friently-Hannover VII with an iron fist, and renowned for its avant-garde cinema, keen interest in outer space, and zero percent divorce rate. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 2.984 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, with Law & Order and Education also on the agenda, while Spirituality and International Aid receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Imperial Münich. The average income tax rate is 70.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Imperial Friently economy, worth 342 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, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. 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 114,858 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 151,947th in the world and 8,907th in The North Pacific for Largest Timber Woodchipping Industry, scoring -10 on the Tasmanian Pulp Environmental Export Index.
