|Leader||Emperor Vizikus Alsparatus|
The Monarchy of Zermanny is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Emperor Vizikus Alsparatus with an iron fist, and notable for its avowedly heterosexual populace, keen interest in outer space, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 4.114 billion Zermanns are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."
The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized morass — juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Zweinheim. The average income tax rate is 91.9%.
The all-consuming Zermann economy, worth 399 trillion Credits a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Basket Weaving and Tourism. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 97,120 Credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.3 times as much as the poorest.
All statues and paintings of dogs are being destroyed to avoid offending cat-lovers, all tariffs have been abolished, power stations shutting down at night has made bedtime reading tricky, and political parties are banned from advertising and receiving private donations. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Zermanny's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Christianity.
