The Dictatorship of Trance Empire is a massive, cultured nation, remarkable for its rum-swilling pirates, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 1.398 billion Germans 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 large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Great Berlin. The average income tax rate is 90.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Trance Empirean economy, worth 250 trillion Reichsmarks 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 a large, well-organized, broadly diversified black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Book Publishing. 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 impressive 179,161 Reichsmarks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Nephews and nieces of the monarch resort to begging from relatives in palace halls, a PhD just ain't what it used to be, there's no cure or sympathy for the common cold, and employers are keenest on employees who lack family values. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Trance Empire's national animal is the Phoenix Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Trance Empire is ranked 6,573rd in the world and 276th in The North Pacific for Largest Agricultural Sector, scoring 7,877.87 on the Mu-Bah-Daggs Productivity Index.
