The Demokratische Republik of Unsere Ostdeutschland is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Erich Honecker with an iron fist, and notable for its irreverence towards religion, absence of drug laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 2.385 billion Ostdeutschens are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ost-Berlin. The average income tax rate is 52.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Unsere Ostdeutschlandian economy, worth 92.5 trillion ostmarks 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 large, well-organized, quite specialized black market in Trout Farming, 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 38,779 ostmarks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Children regularly take part in blood sports that result in extreme boo-boos, armed war-criminals gain asylum if deemed 'fabulous' enough, citizens are now allowed to discuss whether Erich Honecker is the greatest ruler ever or simply the greatest ruler of this generation, and feuilletons can only be deciphered with a Galliennais dictionary. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Unsere Ostdeutschland's national animal is the double headed eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Unsere Ostdeutschland is ranked 51,087th in the world and 9th in Warschauer Pakt for Most Cultured, scoring 68 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
