The Reich of Gerlandics is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Frank-Walter Steinmeier with a fair hand, and renowned for its frequent executions, parental licensing program, and suspicion of poets. The hard-working, democratic population of 3.242 billion Gerlandians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Berlin. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 43.8%.

The very strong Gerlandic economy, worth 203 trillion Gerlandic Marks a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Door-to-door Insurance Sales, Arms Manufacturing, and Information Technology. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 62,754 Gerlandic Marks, with the richest citizens earning 5.9 times as much as the poorest.

The government is lending a hand to private industry, government officials are held to the highest standard of morality, motorcycle riders are required to wear so much gear they've been nicknamed "Stay Pufts", and uploading purple prose to social media earns a place on a government watchlist. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Gerlandics's national animal is the Hawk and its national religion is Atheism.

Gerlandics is ranked 202,646th in the world and 2nd in The European Commonwealth of Nations for Most Avoided, scoring 1.66 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
