The Colony of Flooded Germany is a massive, safe nation, renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, sprawling nuclear power plants, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 1.2 billion Flooded Germanyians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Geriatric Gastrotopia. The average income tax rate is 33.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Flooded Germanyian economy, worth 106 trillion Credits a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Woodchip Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 88,882 Credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Medical experts advise that those claiming to be medical experts are probably fraudsters, employers are finding it hard to screen candidates now that everyone gets A grades in their exams, the government maintains a Department of Skulduggery, and many of the unemployed have had the fight taken out of them. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Flooded Germany's national animal is the Sentients, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Flooded Germany is ranked 31,016th in the world and 1,685th in Lazarus for Highest Poor Incomes, with 55,324.03 Standard Monetary Units.
