The Republic of Zermanny is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Chancellor Constantine von Burns with an iron fist, and remarkable for its disturbing lack of elderly people, restrictive gun laws, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 2.465 billion 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, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Central Capitol. The average income tax rate is 82.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Zermann economy, worth 178 trillion Zermann Credits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is mostly made up of the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Basket Weaving. Average income is 72,562 Zermann Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Red Cross demand for body bags is rising while sutures go unused, visitors to Zermanny are microchipped and must be escorted by a Zermann soldier - even to the bathroom, citizens with artificial limbs are forbidden to serve as beauty pageant judges, and passwords to nuclear codes must now contain upper and lower case characters. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Zermanny's national animal is the Zermann Eagle and its national religion is Christianity.

Zermanny is ranked 168,319th in the world and 319th in Thaecia for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -6.69 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
