The ✠ Grand Empire ✠ of Friently is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Emperor Bryan von Friently-Hannover VII with an iron fist, and notable for its national health service, free-roaming dinosaurs, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 7.594 billion Imperial Citizens are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is effectively ruled by the Department of Defense, with Law & Order also on the agenda, while International Aid and Spirituality are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Imperial Münich. The average income tax rate is 91.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Imperial Friently economy, worth a remarkable 2,126 trillion ReichsEuros a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, quite specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing and Information Technology. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 280,084 ReichsEuros, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

Failure to pay the thrice-daily homage to the divine Emperor Bryan von Friently-Hannover VII is punishable by death, it is written that heretics die and Emperor Bryan von Friently-Hannover VII laughs, pro-democracy protesters are shot on sight by state police, and policemen regularly conduct midnight raids on closed donut shops to 'collect evidence'. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Friently's national animal is the German Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is The Twin Angels.

Friently is ranked 101st in the world and 10th in The North Pacific for Largest Arms Manufacturing Sector, scoring 132,672.15 on the Charon Conveyancy Index.
