The Free Land of Handecanistan is a huge, safe nation, renowned for its parental licensing program, sprawling nuclear power plants, and national health service. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 299 million Handecanistanians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The relatively small government prioritizes Education, with Administration, Healthcare, and Law & Order also on the agenda, while Spirituality and International Aid are ignored. The average income tax rate is 17.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Handecanistanian economy, worth 25.4 trillion pounds a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Information Technology, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 84,900 pounds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

Nature magazines featuring stick insects on their covers are sometimes mistaken for fashion magazines, minority children spend hours bussing to schools miles away from home, major boxing matches are held in government buildings, and therapists dispense hugs for heroin dealers and cuddles for crackheads. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Handecanistan's national animal is the Grey Squirrel, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Handecanistan is ranked 68,813th in the world and 6th in Ecora for Largest Mining Sector, scoring 2,401.55 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
