German Spitsbergen

Population1.412 billion

LeaderJohann Friedrich Kreuzner V
FaithOrange Catholicism


The Armed Commonwealth of German Spitsbergen is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Johann Friedrich Kreuzner V with an even hand, and notable for its strictly enforced bedtime, parental licensing program, and state-planned economy. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 1.412 billion Spitsbergeners are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, corrupt government prioritizes Defense, with Education, Law & Order, and Industry also on the agenda. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nordstadt. The average income tax rate is 50.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Spitsbergener economy, worth 190 trillion Ducats a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Trout Farming. Average income is an impressive 134,671 Ducats, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.7 times as much as the poorest.

Barbed wire entanglements and guard towers surround the Nordstadt Natural History Museum, engaged partners detail their fiancés' private lives in detail to prurient bureaucrats, every workday begins with group therapy, and not even good behaviour will get transgender inmates any special perks. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. German Spitsbergen's national animal is the wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Orange Catholicism.

German Spitsbergen is ranked 20,847th in the world and 1,037th in The North Pacific for Highest Poor Incomes, with 66,628.43 Standard Monetary Units.
