German Defence Force IX

Population2.521 billion


The Republic of German Defence Force IX is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its frequent executions, compulsory vegetarianism, and suspicion of poets. The cynical population of 2.521 billion German Defence Force IXians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Law & Order, Industry, and Welfare are also considered important. The average income tax rate is 41.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The German Defence Force IXian economy, worth 143 trillion monies 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 large, well-organized black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Cheese Exports, and Woodchip Exports. 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 57,054 monies, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Children who display even minimal sporting aptitude are immediately assigned a personal trainer, the government funds large training centres to turn animals into functioning members of society, hordes of gardening enthusiasts are being banished from cities nationwide, and proletariat workers identify less with the hammer and sickle and more with the touchscreen and phone charger. 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 IX's national animal is the animal, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

German Defence Force IX is ranked 4,548th in the world and 1st in MG Puppet Storage for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring 6,447.57 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
