The Kingdom of Handenburg is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Nepperup Eisengratzer with an iron fist, and renowned for its compulsory military service, unlimited-speed roads, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 2.037 billion Handenburgians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Education, Industry, and Law & Order are also considered important, while Spirituality and Public Transport receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hamburg. The average income tax rate is 65.2%.

The powerhouse Handenburgian economy, worth 224 trillion ReichsMarks a year, is fairly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Automobile Manufacturing, Woodchip Exports, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 110,129 ReichsMarks, with the richest citizens earning 5.1 times as much as the poorest.

Everyone apparently sends Nepperup Eisengratzer hair-filled lockets, offers to die heroically, and poetic desires to co-parent a child, bargain-hunting is considered unpatriotic, wrongful arrests abound as 'criminals' blame the guy next to them, and search and rescue forces now accept cheques and all major credit cards. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Handenburg's national animal is the Egal, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is shinto.

Handenburg is ranked 82,777th in the world and 22nd in Germany for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with zero Valid Endorsements.
