The Visengrad Empire of Grande Germania is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Alberto I with an iron fist, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, free-roaming dinosaurs, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 1.88 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 prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order, Industry, and Education also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Environment receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Prague. The average income tax rate is 31.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Grande Germanian economy, worth 255 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 135,780 Visengrad crowns, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.5 times as much as the poorest.

Historical commemorations regularly devolve into militaristic jingoism, libraries are refusing to stock A Midsummer Night's Dream because it has an ass in it, wars of expansion are described as "peacekeeping operations", and citizens live in superstitious fear of the mysterious glowing clouds that float over Grande Germania. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable 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 251,780th in the world and 24th in The Official United Nations for Most Rebellious Youth, scoring -24 on the Stark-Dean Displacement Index.
