German Defence Force II

Population2.679 billion


The Republic of German Defence Force II is a massive, orderly nation, renowned for its smutty television, public floggings, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, cynical, devout population of 2.679 billion German Defence Force IIians 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, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Administration, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 54.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong German Defence Force IIian economy, worth 200 trillion currencies 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 a slick, highly efficient, fairly diversified black market in Tourism, Cheese Exports, Basket Weaving, and Furniture Restoration. 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 74,860 currencies, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Leader is refusing to make decisions until the Moon is out of Capricorn, hundreds of subterranean tunnels are being built as part of "Project Morlock", weapons are only sold to foreign governments that are legitimate enough to not bounce the cheque, and scavengers with burlap sacks and shovels skulk around graveyards. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. German Defence Force II's national animal is the animal.

German Defence Force II is ranked 13,377th in the world and 3rd in MG Puppet Storage for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring 5,330.72 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
