The Republic of The Templar Germain is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its smutty television, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 656 million Templars are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Healthcare, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Germain City. The average income tax rate is 43.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Templar economy, worth 67.8 trillion Marks a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Retail, Book Publishing, and Information Technology. Average income is an impressive 103,354 Marks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

A ban on unsolicited cold calling in all forms is in effect, manual labourers must be willing to have cybernetic limbs to get a job, the mining industry is making inroads into environmentally sensitive areas, and main battle tanks stalk the woods of The Templar Germain in search of Empire Eagles. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. The Templar Germain's national animal is the Empire Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

The Templar Germain is ranked 84,032nd in the world and 97th in Eurth for Highest Drug Use, scoring 79.6 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
