German Spitsbergen

FaithOrange Catholicism


The Sovereign State of German Spitsbergen is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Arminius Tegetthoff with an iron fist, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, state-planned economy, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 1.67 billion Spitsbergeners are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt government prioritizes Defense, with Education, Law & Order, and Healthcare also on the agenda. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nordstadt. The average income tax rate is 52.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Spitsbergener economy, worth 224 trillion Ducats a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Trout Farming. Average income is an impressive 134,170 Ducats, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.9 times as much as the poorest.

Both diets and economic output are growing leaner with recent restrictions to free trade, roads are often attended by round-the-clock construction crews, the military recognizes no difference between male and female soldiers, and search and rescue forces now accept cheques and all major credit cards. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. German Spitsbergen's national animal is the wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Orange Catholicism.

German Spitsbergen is ranked 167,347th in the world and 7,658th in The North Pacific for Most Pro-Market, scoring -60.11 on the Rand Index.
