The German Empire of Greater Terran Union 1st is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Wilhelm II with an even hand, and notable for its pith helmet sales, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed population of 3.723 billion Germans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order, Administration, and Education also on the agenda. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Berlin. The average income tax rate is 68.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but inefficient Greater Terran Union 1stian economy, worth 145 trillion Golden Marks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Basket Weaving, and Book Publishing. Average income is 39,087 Golden Marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Up to 40% of voters can finally read the issues they're deciding on, there's sophisticated talk of revolution within the ever-expanding mining colonies, historical commemorations regularly devolve into militaristic jingoism, and the nation's universities are often mistaken for foreign embassies. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Greater Terran Union 1st's national animal is the Imperial Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Christianity.

Greater Terran Union 1st is ranked 108,001st in the world and 70th in Institute of Cellulose for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with zero valid endorsements.
