German Spitsbergen

Population2.25 billion

LeaderWernher von Kassius
FaithOrange Catholicism


The Hanseatic Commonwealth of German Spitsbergen is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Wernher von Kassius with an iron fist, and remarkable for its parental licensing program, otherworldly petting zoo, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 2.25 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 304 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.

The red star of communism has been replaced by the gold star of the McRonald's badge, the government spends billions to protect German Spitsbergen from a disaster that is one in a million, Spitsbergeners seem to be catching more chills, and cops with assault weaponry are forcing their way into private homes to search for terrorists. 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 28,387th in the world and 1,273rd in The North Pacific for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring 4,368.17 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
