Wie Deutschland

Population1.251 billion

AnimalHoney Badger

The Empire of Wie Deutschland is a massive, cultured nation, renowned for its museums and concert halls, barren, inhospitable landscape, and enslaved workforce. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 1.251 billion Wie Deutschlandians 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 relatively small, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order, Administration, and Industry are also considered important, while Environment and Spirituality aren't funded at all. The average income tax rate is 25.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Wie Deutschlandian economy, worth 197 trillion Honeys a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an impressive 158,255 Honeys, with the richest citizens earning 5.0 times as much as the poorest.

One-stop superstores divide and conquer family businesses, foreign leaders never seem to want to shake hands with Leader, some magnifier-wielding Wie Deutschlandians say Leader seems a little lacking in something, and anyone who sneezes at border crossings is turned away. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Wie Deutschland's national animal is the Honey Badger, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Wie Deutschland is ranked 74,845th in the world and 2,737th in The North Pacific for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 5 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
