The Imperial Commonwealth of Viertes deutsches Koalitionsreich is a huge, cultured nation, notable for its compulsory military service, keen interest in outer space, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 776 million Fourth Germans are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Zentral Imperialer Kern. The average income tax rate is 67.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Fourth German economy, worth 77.8 trillion Reichsmarks a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 100,215 Reichsmarks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Depression sinks in after each election when voters realize they are stuck with these people for years, the government is pouring money into 'Operation Enduring Democracy', hordes of faceless civil servants are running cities, and preschoolers practice disarming active shooters before naptime. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Viertes deutsches Koalitionsreich's national animal is the Holy Roman Eagle, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Viertes deutsches Koalitionsreich is ranked 22,950th in the world and 658th in the South Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 72.46 on the Human Development Index.
