The Russian United States of Hansdeltania is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by President Doctor Kyle Milonved with an iron fist, and renowned for its daily referendums, complete lack of prisons, and avant-garde cinema. The compassionate, cynical, humorless population of 7.818 billion Hansdeltanians 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 enormous, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hansdelta. The average income tax rate is 99.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Hansdeltanian economy, worth a remarkable 1,656 trillion hansdeltanoes a year, is highly specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing and Tourism. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 211,893 hansdeltanoes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

Vacationers and business travelers are often warned that they may lose the right to vote if they spend too much time overseas, medical experts advise that those claiming to be medical experts are probably fraudsters, the WhoTube comments section has gone strangely quiet, and residents of new housing subdivisions complain about the total absence of supermarkets and restaurants. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Hansdeltania's national animal is the Hansdeltanian eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is atheism.

Hansdeltania is ranked 135,258th in the world and 29th in The Alliance of Dictators for Most Politically Free, scoring 31.43 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
