Franconia and Bavaria

Population1.002 billion

CapitalNew Munich
LeaderGrand Marshal Timoshenko


The People's Republic of Franconia and Bavaria is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Grand Marshal Timoshenko with an even hand, and renowned for its ubiquitous missile silos, daily referendums, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate population of 1.002 billion Franconians and Bavarians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Munich. The average income tax rate is 82.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Franconian and Bavarian economy, worth 107 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 fairly diversified, is led by the Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 106,864 Marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Politicians can be seen taking candy from babies, a faint smell of body odour can be detected at several miles' distance from the National Science Park, blood stains the floors of the execution room and the hands of the state, and torture is illegal. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Franconia and Bavaria's national animal is the wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Franconia and Bavaria is ranked 21,322nd in the world and 376th in 10000 Islands for Smartest Citizens, with 60.17 quips per hour.
