The Königswahlmonarchie of Freistaat Hannover is a massive, cultured nation, notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, public floggings, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 1.292 billion Hannoverians are free to succeed or fail in life on their own merits; the successful tend to enjoy an opulent (but moralistic) lifestyle, while the failures can be seen crowding out most jails.
The medium-sized, moralistic government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hannover. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 23.4%.
The powerhouse Freistaat Hannoverian economy, worth 106 trillion Thalers a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is 82,460 Thalers, with the richest citizens earning 9.2 times as much as the poorest.
'Mountain Doobie' is widely regarded as the nation's favourite drink, school lessons are constantly interrupted by 'teacher needs a break' time, nursing mothers are often arrested for indecent exposure, and the "war on terror" doesn't seem to be making Hannoverians any less frightened. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Freistaat Hannover's national animal is the White Steed, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.
