The Principality of Saarland-Niederbayern is a huge, efficient nation, ruled by Oma Ida with a fair hand, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, keen interest in outer space, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 892 million Saarlandic-Lower Bavarians are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.

The tiny, corrupt, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ida City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 3.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Saarland-Niederbayernian economy, worth 139 trillion Billiges a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is an impressive 156,697 Billiges, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 892,934 per year while the poor average 13,356, a ratio of 66.9 to 1.

The cycle of extinction and rebirth is never ending, would-be emigrants are told "abandon all hope all ye who would exit here", college athletes are arrested for selling lemonade, and the nation's ambassadors often conduct their business in jail cells. Crime is a major problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Saarland-Niederbayern's national animal is the Kackbratze, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Saarland-Niederbayern is ranked 186,669th in the world and 864th in Europeia for Highest Poor Incomes, with 13,356.95 Standard Monetary Units.
