The Republic of Zermanny is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by President Adam Olsborne with an iron fist, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, pith helmet sales, and parental licensing program. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 4.262 billion Zermanns are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized morass — juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Zweinheim. The average income tax rate is 93.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Zermann economy, worth 426 trillion Credits 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 mostly made up of the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Basket Weaving. Average income is 99,993 Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Immigrants who don't like the taste of Zermann Turnip Chips are immediately deported, excessive wheelchair ramps on government buildings have been compared to theme park attractions, dubiously qualified East Lebatuckese doctors prescribe ice baths as a treatment for pneumonia, and the government has little issue with allowing its citizens to languish in foreign jails. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Zermanny's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Christianity.

Zermanny is ranked 3,358th in the world and 2nd in Thaecia for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring 12,170.45 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
