The Visengrad Empire of Grande Germania is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Alberto I with an iron fist, and renowned for its ritual sacrifices, public floggings, and parental licensing program. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 1.652 billion Visegradians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Prague. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 30.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Grande Germanian economy, worth 224 trillion Visengrad crowns a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Information Technology, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 136,117 Visengrad crowns, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 628,017 per year while the poor average 17,832, a ratio of 35.2 to 1.

Nothing gets the party jumping like Alberto I specifying how high, women wearing male lounge-wear are quizzed for hours by mental health practitioners, the government has cautiously opted to support women's suffrage, and wheelchair users complain it is nearly impossible for them to cross the road in Prague. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Grande Germania's national animal is the Lion, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Roman Catholicism.

Grande Germania is ranked 78,664th in the world and 3rd in The Official United Nations for Smartest Citizens, with 36.06 quips per hour.
