The ✠ Grand Empire ✠ of Friently is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Emperor Bryan von Friently-Hannover VII with an iron fist, and remarkable for its national health service, zero percent divorce rate, and aversion to nipples. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 4.808 billion Imperial Citizens 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 large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is effectively ruled by the Department of Defense, although Law & Order and Education are also considered important, while Spirituality and International Aid receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Imperial Münich. The average income tax rate is 88.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Imperial Friently economy, worth a remarkable 1,003 trillion ReichsEuros a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, quite specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing and Information Technology. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 208,766 ReichsEuros, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

Foreign leaders who don't applaud Emperor Bryan von Friently-Hannover VII's speeches are regarded as enemies of Friently, vacationing Imperial Citizens expect to be treated as royalty, children as young as twelve are conscripted into the armed forces, and at the edge of the final frontier space's biggest missile platform is about to unfold. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Friently's national animal is the German Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Catholicism.

Friently is ranked 14,132nd in the world and 439th in The North Pacific for Highest Economic Output, with 1,003 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
