The Marxist-Leninist Republic of The Saar Commune is a huge, genial nation, ruled by Oskar Lafontaine with an iron fist, and renowned for its free-roaming dinosaurs, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, cynical population of 911 million Saarländer are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The enormous, corrupt, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Saarbrücken. The average income tax rate is 80.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Saar economy, worth 75.2 trillion Saar Marks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Book Publishing, and Cheese Exports. Average income is 82,590 Saar Marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

More and more people are signing up for the government party, a degree in Oskar Lafontaine Science with a Minor in Awesomeology starts many political careers, arbitrary election rules are considered sacrosanct, and TSC-SPAN viewership drops as MPs act their age. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Saar Commune's national animal is the Swine, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

The Saar Commune is ranked 62,926th in the world and 15th in Deutschland for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 3,179.41 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
