The Kingdom of Great Hanover is a massive, safe nation, ruled by HM King George VII with a fair hand, and remarkable for its infamous sell-swords, ubiquitous missile silos, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.826 billion Great Hanoverians 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 medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Amsterdon. The average income tax rate is 66.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Great Hanoverian economy, worth 298 trillion Hanoverian Dollars a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Trout Farming, Basket Weaving, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 105,508 Hanoverian Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Students do more community service than homework, etiquette guides advise visitors to 'grovel gracefully', the nation's industries are scrambling to switch to biodegradable plastics, and the latest "must-have" uPhone is 1/4 mm thinner than last year's uPhone. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Great Hanover's national animal is the Hanoverian Walker Horse, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Catholicism.

Great Hanover is ranked 239,264th in the world and 892nd in Europe for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -31.43 on the Hayek Index.
