The Democratic Republic of Zermanny is a very large, safe nation, notable for its keen interest in outer space, compulsory military service, and punitive income tax rates. The cynical, devout population of 169 million Zermanns are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. The average income tax rate is 78.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Zermann economy, worth 2.48 trillion Zermann Marks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Basket Weaving, Information Technology, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is 14,665 Zermann Marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation's politicians are acknowledged as the most polite in the region to the dismay of comedians everywhere, escargots have lost their charm ever since they started to be called 'cooked land snails', nuclear warheads are frequently launched into space as a warning to invading meteoroids, and blood stains the floors of the execution room and the hands of the state. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Zermanny's national animal is the Zermann Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Zermanny is ranked 151,147th in the world and 52nd in Union of Liberal Nations for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 12.92 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
