The Commonwealth of Hanoveria is a massive, devout nation, ruled by President Francis Hannigan with an even hand, and notable for its complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, intelligent population of 4.578 billion Hanoverians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The government -- a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass -- juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, the Environment, and Education. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hawkesbury. Income tax is unheard of. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Tourism industry.

The police have been swamped with requests to stay up past bedtime, children have taken to using semaphore in light of the recent mobile phone ban, all judiciary cases are decided in the court of public opinion, and much of Hanoveria's computer network is controlled by a rampant artificial intelligence. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Hanoveria's national animal is the Wendell Seal, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, its national religion is Roman Catholicism, and its currency is the Pence.

Hanoveria is ranked 226th in British Isles and 105,433rd in the world for Most Rebellious Youth, scoring -13 on the Stark-Dean Displacement Index.
