The Großherzogtum of Baden and Hesse is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Landgräfin Mary with an iron fist, and remarkable for its compulsory military service, zero percent divorce rate, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 4.438 billion Hessians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kassel. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 43.1%.

The all-consuming Hessian economy, worth 270 trillion Reichsmarks a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Woodchip Exports, and Automobile Manufacturing. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is 60,995 Reichsmarks, with the richest citizens earning 7.5 times as much as the poorest.

Hessians incessantly needle their doctors for relief, Brancaland has gifted over nine thousand putrid moose carcasses to Baden and Hesse as a reminder of their "special relationship", mysterious black helicopters menace farmers to ensure compliance with straitjacketing agricultural policies, and citizens who fail to follow the official national religion are executed. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. Baden and Hesse's national animal is the Turul and its national religion is Protestantismus.

Baden and Hesse is ranked 152,504th in the world and 9th in Nordisches Kaiserreich for Most Inclusive, scoring 75.04 on the Mandela-Wollstonecraft Non-Discrimination Index.
