The ✠ Grand Empire ✠ of Friently is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Emperor Bryan von Friently-Hannover VII with an iron fist, and notable for its closed borders, unlimited-speed roads, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 7.576 billion Imperial Citizens 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, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is effectively ruled by the Department of Defense, although Law & Order is also considered important, while International Aid and Spirituality aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Imperial Münich. The average income tax rate is 91.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Imperial Friently economy, worth a remarkable 2,103 trillion ReichsEuros 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 an enormous, deeply entrenched, quite specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing and Information Technology. 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 an amazing 277,686 ReichsEuros, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

Children as young as twelve are conscripted into the armed forces, the government blames all suspicious phenomena on flying saucers, the nation is under martial law, and military spending recently hit a new high. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Friently's national animal is the German Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is The Twin Angels.

Friently is ranked 226,074th in the world and 10,470th in The North Pacific for Safest, scoring 5.76 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
