The Menselijke Bewoners of Baarle-Hertog H-23 is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Dux van Litsenbourg with an even hand, and notable for its happy-go-lucky citizens. The compassionate, intelligent population of 5.277 billion Baarle-Hertog H-23ians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Social Welfare, and Social Equality. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Antwerp. The average income tax rate is 99%. The private sector is almost wholly made up of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out.

The "Underwear of Women in Power" issue of The Antwerp Times is sold out, postmen have been arrested in job lots for selling junk mail as home insulation, the government is making attempts at curtailing the flood of spam emails with little progress, and the government pours millions of DuxBuxs into rehabilitation programs annually. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Baarle-Hertog H-23's national animal is the Moule, which is also the nation's favorite main course, its national religion is Pintjes, and its currency is the DuxBux.

Baarle-Hertog H-23 is ranked 5,459th in the Rejected Realms and 108,799th in the world for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring -9 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
