The Hanseatic Commonwealth of German Spitsbergen is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Wernher von Kassius with an iron fist, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, sprawling nuclear power plants, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 2.243 billion Spitsbergeners are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nordstadt. The average income tax rate is 58.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Spitsbergener economy, worth 303 trillion Nordsmarks a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Trout Farming. Average income is an impressive 135,521 Nordsmarks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.6 times as much as the poorest.

Hordes of unemployed lumberjacks have resorted to cutting down utility poles to satisfy their cravings, the red star of communism has been replaced by the gold star of the McRonald's badge, the government spends billions to protect German Spitsbergen from a disaster that is one in a million, and Spitsbergeners seem to be catching more chills. 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 81,976th in the world and 3,212th in The North Pacific for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 4.58 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
