The Dictatorship of Trance Empire is a massive, cultured nation, renowned for its otherworldly petting zoo, ubiquitous missile silos, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed population of 1.114 billion Germans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Great Berlin. The average income tax rate is 86.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Trance Empirean economy, worth 172 trillion Reichsmarks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Book Publishing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 154,942 Reichsmarks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Workers have seized control of the economy, tie-dye has been outlawed for being 'too occult', vast amounts of energy are expended moving water to hilltop lakes, and teenagers haven't been seen outdoors since the nation reconnected to the Internet. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Trance Empire's national animal is the Phoenix Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Trance Empire is ranked 197,633rd in the world and 8,669th in The North Pacific for Fattest Citizens, with 5.95 Obesity Rate.
