The Kingdom of Hanover of Hermes Express 123 is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by King George VII with an iron fist, and notable for its parental licensing program, compulsory military service, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, cynical population of 9.454 billion Hanoverians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Administration, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hanover. The average income tax rate is 98.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Hanoverian economy, worth a remarkable 2,151 trillion Thalers a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 227,563 Thalers, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

The newest shade developed by Hermes Express 123's dye industry has been dubbed 'Agent Orange', government theft from poor artists to give to rich allies has been dubbed the "reverse Robin Hood" policy, vanity is the constant enemy of dignity, and Hanoverian junkies argue that poppy stalks are ornamental flowers. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Hermes Express 123's national animal is the White Stallion, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Evangelical-Lutheran Church of Hanover.

Hermes Express 123 is ranked 1,259th in the world and 2nd in Gypsy Lands for Lowest Crime Rates, with 160.54 law-abiding acts per hour.
