The Herrebrugher Workers' Army of De 32ste Volksdivisie is a gargantuan, safe nation, notable for its complete lack of prisons, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The democratic population of 23.838 billion workers' soldiers 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 enormous, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Healthcare, and Education. The average income tax rate is 70.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but stagnant workers' soldier economy, worth 107 trillion guilders a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, quite specialized black market in Trout Farming, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, Furniture Restoration, and Cheese Exports. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 4,502 guilders, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. De 32ste Volksdivisie's national animal is the lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

De 32ste Volksdivisie is ranked 192,343rd in the world and 174th in The Internationale for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 31.94 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
