The Federal Republic of GeldMark is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Gebhard Knepp with a fair hand, and renowned for its irreverence towards religion, absence of drug laws, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 3.986 billion GeldMarkians live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The minute, pro-business, outspoken government, or what there is of one, prioritizes Industry, although Education and Healthcare are also considered important, while Social Policy and Spirituality aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Straßburg. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 4.1%.

The frighteningly efficient GeldMarkian economy, worth 372 trillion Silberzählers a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is fairly diversified and led by the Soda Sales industry, with major contributions from Retail, Information Technology, and Pizza Delivery. Average income is 93,541 Silberzählers, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 446,996 per year while the poor average 11,479, a ratio of 38.9 to 1.

Party leaders rely on horoscopes to create "ticket balance", kids are taught in schools to argue with their parents, hidden bedroom-cams are installed to catch mothers doing their kids' homework, and prisoners can't do number twos without their "toilet buddy" present. Crime, especially youth-related, is pervasive, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. GeldMark's national animal is the Eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Lutheran.

GeldMark is ranked 143,356th in the world and 54th in World Conference for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring -7.75 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
