The Bundesrepublik of Freed Bavaria is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Ben Clifton with an even hand, and remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, keen interest in outer space, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 2.692 billion Bavarians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Neu Munchen. The average income tax rate is 65.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Freed Bavarian economy, worth 382 trillion Munches a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Book Publishing, and Tourism. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 142,224 Munches, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.6 times as much as the poorest.

School children are expected to know the names of all seven hundred native tribes and their cultural practices, businessmen walk out of meetings halfway because their shift is over, popular cartoon characters frequently appear in government-sponsored PSAs reminding students to say no to drugs, and the regional delicacy of chocolate bombes is deadlier than an unexploded bomb. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Freed Bavaria's national animal is the Black Eagle, which can occasionally be seen dodging aircraft in the nation's cities.

Freed Bavaria is ranked 200,231st in the world and 41st in The Wolf Clan for Least Corrupt Governments, with 51.33 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
