The Commune of Magna Batavia is a colossal, economically powerful nation, ruled by the Legislative Union with an iron fist, and renowned for its punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 8.714 billion Magna Batavians are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt, pro-business 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 Wereldhoofdstad Amsterdam. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 80%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Gambling industry, followed by Arms Manufacturing and Information Technology.

Immigrant herding has become a national pastime, Pinkerton agents are called in to forcibly break up white collar strikes, a typical fast food menu item could serve a small army, and photographers have to apply for a license to photograph the Legislative Union. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Magna Batavia's national animal is the Rijksadelaar, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its currency is the Rijksgulden.

Magna Batavia is ranked 3rd in Union of Nationalists and 8,090th in the world for Largest Defense Forces, with 145 Unexploded Ordnance per Square Mile.
