The German Empire of Hurricania Imperium is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Emperor Hurricane Harvey with an iron fist, and renowned for its irreverence towards religion, absence of drug laws, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 4.592 billion Hurricanes are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The tiny, corrupt, pro-business, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Industry also on the agenda, while Environment and Social Policy receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hurricania Konigsberg. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 2.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Hurricanic economy, worth a remarkable 1,179 trillion Reichsmarks a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Gambling, and Retail. Average income is an amazing 256,913 Reichsmarks, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,276,298 per year while the poor average 29,256, a ratio of 43.6 to 1.

Locally produced computer games are being released faster than gamers can play them, veterans in wheelchairs are left waist-deep in rice paddies to gather grain, schoolchildren's "what I did on my holidays" essays tend to be somewhat homogeneous, and construction of the Really Big Hadron Collider is underway. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Hurricania Imperium's national animal is the Hurricane, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Church of Hurricanes.

Hurricania Imperium is ranked 814th in the world and 3rd in Axis of Storms for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 1.28 million Standard Monetary Units.
