The 2nd German Confederation

Population229 million


The United Socialist States of The 2nd German Confederation is a huge, orderly nation, remarkable for its state-planned economy, free-roaming dinosaurs, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 229 million Germans are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The enormous, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 72.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but sluggish 2nd German Confederationian economy, worth 7.33 trillion marks 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 Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Cheese Exports, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is 32,015 marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Scoutmasters debate whether luxury log cabins defeat the purpose of camping, the phrase 'spreading like wildfire' is no longer in the public lexicon, the army is spending millions cloning khaki-colored dinosaurs, and lavish state dinners in The 2nd German Confederation City are the state's leading budgetary expenditure. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The 2nd German Confederation's national animal is the hawk, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

The 2nd German Confederation is ranked 142,650th in the world and 710th in The Communist Bloc for Most Politically Free, scoring 3.6 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
