The Empire of Grouberdastchereichenstag is a huge, efficient nation, renowned for its prohibition of alcohol, ubiquitous missile silos, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 424 million Reichstagians 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 juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Grouberbundestag. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 28.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Grouberdastchereichenstagian economy, worth 36.3 trillion Reichsmarches a year, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is 85,533 Reichsmarches, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 325,124 per year while the poor average 15,603, a ratio of 20.8 to 1.

The mummified remains of former kings are apparently discovered every time a tourist loses their wallet, it's always rabbit season, Leader's new office has a propensity to catch on fire, and the police have reaffirmed their tough stance on drugs. Crime is moderate, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Grouberdastchereichenstag's national animal is the Panther, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Grouberdastchereichenstag is ranked 169,742nd in the world and 548th in Confederation of Corrupt Dictators for Highest Drug Use, scoring 2.6 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
