The Demokratische Republik of Unsere Ostdeutschland is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Erich Honecker with an iron fist, and renowned for its rum-swilling pirates, public floggings, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 3.906 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 enormous, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ost-Berlin. The average income tax rate is 55.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Unsere Ostdeutschlandian economy, worth 191 trillion ostmarks a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Trout Farming, Arms Manufacturing, and Cheese Exports. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 49,044 ostmarks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Ost-Berlin's main city thoroughfare has been blocked by a row of leyland cypresses that mysteriously appeared overnight, soldiers on first dates introduce themselves only by their ranks and serial numbers, the government is cracking down on subversive groups, and increasing numbers of children in Unsere Ostdeutschland have different eye and hair color to their supposed fathers. 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 86,757th in the world and 1st in Warschauer Pakt for Most Extreme, scoring 20.15 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
