OverviewPoliciesPeopleGovernmentEconomyRankTrendCards

The Commonwealth of Gernmark is a huge, orderly nation, ruled by Wilhelm Gerhardt with an iron fist, and notable for its compulsory military service, strictly enforced bedtime, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 825 million Gernishes 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 large, corrupt, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Industry, Law & Order, and Administration also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Environment aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Steinstadt. The average income tax rate is 64.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Gernish economy, worth 80.8 trillion Marks a year, is dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Information Technology, and Gambling. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is 97,913 Marks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.4 times as much as the poorest.

Jaywalking is punishable by public flogging, police nightsticks see use all day long, indigenous tribal elders can be recognised by their designer watches and expensive suits, and Wilhelm Gerhardt has just been declared ruler of Gernmark in an international press conference. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Gernmark's national animal is the Great Eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Gernmark is ranked 14,869th in the world and 297th in The East Pacific for Most Subsidized Industry, scoring 6,464.59 on the Gilded Widget Scale.
