The United States of Germania-Osterreich is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Chancellor Kurt von Schleicher with an iron fist, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, parental licensing program, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 1.007 billion Germania-Osterreichians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The medium-sized, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Frankfurt am Main. The average income tax rate is 67.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Germania-Osterreichian economy, worth 112 trillion Vereinsmarks a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. Average income is an impressive 112,142 Vereinsmarks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

The tax agency is feared more than serial killers and terrorists, the "blue screen of death" forces many trials to be either aborted or restarted, the news is showing footage of Chancellor Kurt von Schleicher bullying an old man to the point of tears, and pareidolic SETI scientists swear there's a message from aliens hidden within pi. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Germania-Osterreich's national animal is the Black Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Germania-Osterreich is ranked 30,107th in the world and 1st in Citizens Alliance of Democracy for Most Developed, scoring 75.35 on the Human Development Index.
