The Kingdom of Freed Bavaria is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Ben Clifton with an iron fist, and notable for its otherworldly petting zoo, infamous sell-swords, and digital currency. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 1.136 billion Bavarians 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 medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Neu Munchen. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 73.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Freed Bavarian economy, worth 166 trillion Munches a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Retail. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 146,145 Munches, with the richest citizens earning 7.6 times as much as the poorest.

The richest individuals apparently buy nothing but noodles and toilet paper, Maxtopian tourists make expensive pilgrimages to Neu Munchen to enjoy their national art, the government has stated an intention to min-max its stats for 'teh pwnage', and the dish 'poisson avec poison' is only available on the black market. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Freed Bavaria's national animal is the Black Eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Freed Bavaria is ranked 13,054th in the world and 11th in The Wolf Clan for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 328.26 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
