The Germanic Union of United Democratic Christian States is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Kaiser Wilhelm IV with an iron fist, and notable for its digital currency, smutty television, and ritual sacrifices. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 8.817 billion Christians 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 relatively small, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order, Industry, and Education are also considered important, while Social Policy and International Aid aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Benbrook. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 24.2%.

The frighteningly efficient United Democratic Christian Statesian economy, worth a remarkable 1,719 trillion German Marks a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 194,987 German Marks, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 641,539 per year while the poor average 44,408, a ratio of 14.4 to 1.

Gay couples have to travel to Brancaland to find a church that will actually let them wed, balaclava manufacturers are held criminally culpable for bank heists, lonely people are supposed to be cheered up by the many parties that they are never invited to, and travelers often bring empty plastic bottles on Air United Democratic Christian States flights to avoid the pay lavatories. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. United Democratic Christian States's national animal is the Imperial Eagle, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Catholic-Lutheranism.

United Democratic Christian States is ranked 3,179th in the world and 4th in Democritus for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 8,119.52 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
