The Running for Commish of Berlin and Hanover is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Is it I or you with a fair hand, and remarkable for its public floggings, restrictive gun laws, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.21 billion Humans love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Party City. The average income tax rate is 90.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Human economy, worth 354 trillion Marks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 160,434 Marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The seventh son of a seventh son is fated to be a millionaire, a common response to government PSAs is "well, DUH, obviously", doctors prescribe videos of political debates to patients with insomnia, and mantis shrimp studies is academia's fastest-growing field. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Berlin and Hanover's national animal is the Cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Nothing.

Berlin and Hanover is ranked 263,268th in the world and 1,150th in Europe for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -248.01 on the Hayek Index.
