The People's Republic of Handiyan is a massive, genial nation, ruled by President Juarez with an even hand, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies. The compassionate, cynical population of 2.834 billion Handiyanians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defence, and Education. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Handiyan City. The average income tax rate is 41%, but much higher for the wealthy. 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 poor are often seen pale and dizzy after selling their blood to make ends meet, children are raised bilingual from an early age, newborns are being raised as mindless killing machines, and the government is promoting multicultural values with the new 'Just Be Nice, OK?' initiative. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Handiyan's national animal is the Black Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its currency is the Santan.

Handiyan is ranked 4,958th in the Rejected Realms and 99,832nd in the world for Least Corrupt Governments, scoring -89 on the Inverse Mugabe Relativity Rating.
