The Germanic Territories of The Death Syndicate is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Governor Alberecht Fahrbach with an iron fist, and remarkable for its rum-swilling pirates, deadly medical pandemics, and infamous sell-swords. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 2.712 billion Death Syndicate Members 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, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Law & Order, Industry, and Education are also considered important, while Environment and Spirituality aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cemetery Hill. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 60.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Death Syndicatean economy, worth 695 trillion Kroner a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Retail. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 256,327 Kroner, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,047,757 per year while the poor average 41,516, a ratio of 25.2 to 1.

Diplomats shake hands with their right and hide a poison dagger in their left, a new "thought police" branch is being developed, the government is well known for declaring war on other countries for suspected slights, and police spend their Saturday nights breaking up illegal street races. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Death Syndicate's national animal is the Plague, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Cult of Sacrifice.

The Death Syndicate is ranked 134,173rd in the world and 5,141st in The East Pacific for Most Average, scoring 33.02 on the Average Standardized Normality Scale.
