The Second Reich of United Nations of the Far West is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Kaiser Wilhelm II with a fair hand, and remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, smutty television, and national health service. The compassionate, democratic population of 4.427 billion Germans love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Berlin. The average income tax rate is 95.8%.

The frighteningly efficient German economy, worth 675 trillion Deutsche Marks a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 152,503 Deutsche Marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government has spent days debating the merits of a petition calling for a ban on sporks, the sound of wooden legs echo throughout United Nations of the Far West after the recent introduction of the Foot Tax, the nation's official head of religious affairs is an atheist, and commemoration of the Great Alternative History War costs almost as much as the war itself. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. United Nations of the Far West's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Catholicism.

United Nations of the Far West is ranked 134,848th in the world and 1st in Alternative History for Largest Manufacturing Sector, scoring 1,337.03 on the Gooback-Jerbs Productivity Index.
