The Grand Duchy of Schlesien-Galizien is a huge, orderly nation, notable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, ubiquitous missile silos, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 610 million Schlesien-Galizienians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Spirituality. The average income tax rate is 68.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped Schlesien-Galizienian economy, worth 23.6 trillion Thalers a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Beef-Based Agriculture industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is 38,713 Thalers, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Concussed Golden Eagleball players cannot remember their lineup position, in musicals everybody's a little bit racist, local mafias have a tough time disposing of dead snitches without catching the attention of recycling authorities, and voting district maps are said to resemble a tyrannosaurus eating the capital. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Schlesien-Galizien's national animal is the Golden Eagle, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Schlesien-Galizien is ranked 172,919th in the world and 4,955th in the West Pacific for Highest Crime Rates, with 2.17 Crimes Per Hour.
