The Allied Imperial Provinces of The Western Germanic Union is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Chancellor Micheal Krauss with a fair hand, and remarkable for its compulsory military service, otherworldly petting zoo, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 2.019 billion Germans enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Colonge. The average income tax rate is 27.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Western Germanic Unionian economy, worth 244 trillion Euros a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 121,189 Euros, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.7 times as much as the poorest.

Private pharmacies close down as medicinal drugs are given away freely by the government, a death threat has replaced 'hello' as an official greeting in the nation, machine-peeled candied grapes come in individual packaging for the busy commuter, and museums have more touchscreens on display than artifacts. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. The Western Germanic Union's national animal is the Imperial Eagle, which can occasionally be seen dodging aircraft in the nation's cities, and its national religion is Christianity.

The Western Germanic Union is ranked 19,554th in the world and 47th in The Free Nations Region for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 7,226.56 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
