The Workers' and Peasants' State of The German Democratic Republic is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Generalsekretär des ZK der SED Krenz with an iron fist, and remarkable for its daily referendums, irreverence towards religion, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, cynical population of 24.294 billion citizens of the GDR 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 government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, corrupt, socially-minded, well-organized morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Berlin - Hauptstadt der DDR. The average income tax rate is 89.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving GDR economy, worth a remarkable 1,953 trillion 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 significant contributions from Tourism, Uranium Mining, and Book Publishing. Average income is 80,418 marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The local custom of Biking With The Cars sends tourists home bemused or in body-bags, toddler groups have taken over local libraries, arthritic surgeons with tremulous fingers reassure patients that they are in safe hands, and the climate agreement has actually increased the volume of hot air in the atmosphere. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The German Democratic Republic's national animal is the peace dove, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

The German Democratic Republic is ranked 171,498th in the world and 7th in Planeet Aarde for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 91,789 Standard Monetary Units.
