|Capital||The Entire City-State|
|Leader||Jan van Leiden|
The Polygamous Commune of Munster AKA New Jerusalem is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Jan van Leiden with an iron fist, and renowned for its anti-smoking policies, keen interest in outer space, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 9.837 billion Munsterites 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 enormous, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Industry, Public Transport, and Education are also considered important. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Entire City-State. The average income tax rate is 98.1%.
The frighteningly efficient Munster AKA New Jerusalemian economy, worth a remarkable 1,818 trillion Notgelds a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, quite specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, Woodchip Exports, and Information Technology. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 184,812 Notgelds, with the richest citizens earning 7.5 times as much as the poorest.
A serf by any other name works just as hard, children are terrified that the 'flying police monster' will come to take them away in the night, wood-framed catapults are ready to launch diseased corpses into besieged cities, and government statistics suggest 115% of the population love Jan van Leiden. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Munster AKA New Jerusalem's national animal is the Foreigner, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Munsteritism.
