The Commonwealth of Hanoveria is a massive, economically powerful nation, ruled by President Francis Hannigan with an even hand, and remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed population of 4.822 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 the Environment, Law & Order, 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.

Genetic researchers have been expelled, the minority inevitably have their addenda vetoed, voters must frequently select what they view as the lesser of two evils on the ballot, and the welfare administration's new sweeping authority has forced the poor and needy to shop from pre-approved grocery lists. 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 75th in British Isles and 31,354th in the world for Highest Police Ratios, scoring 43 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
