The Galactic Empire of Germanic Templars is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Immortal Emperor Thriller with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, public floggings, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cheerful, devout population of 14.74 billion Templars have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Romlin. The average income tax rate is 9.5%.

The powerhouse Germanic Templar economy, worth a remarkable 2,360 trillion Madilin Coins a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 160,166 Madilin Coins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.7 times as much as the poorest.

Extraordinary tribunals try accused financial criminals, books are so highly regarded in Germanic Templars that libraries are often revered as holy shrines, the government's economic policy is "sort it yourself", and bored politicians often entertain themselves with games of Simon during important votes. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Germanic Templars's national animal is the German Shepherd, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Catholicism.

Germanic Templars is ranked 136,781st in the world and 5th in The Crimson Continents of Korthrall for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 368.7 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
