The Commonwealth of Netherlandsch-Indie is a small, cultured nation, renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, irreverence towards religion, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 26 million Indiesches are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.

The minute, pro-business government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 4.9%.

The very strong Netherlandsch-Indiean economy, worth 1.79 trillion Indie Guldens a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Gambling industry, with major contributions from Basket Weaving, Pizza Delivery, and Information Technology. Average income is 68,794 Indie Guldens, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 276,416 per year while the poor average 11,465, a ratio of 24.1 to 1.

A typical fast food menu item could serve a small army, banning party poppers has been a real party pooper, fancy dress parties are raided by military police for new recruits, and students do more community service than homework. Crime is moderate, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Netherlandsch-Indie's national animal is the Tree-Kangaroo, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Netherlandsch-Indie is ranked 54,866th in the world and 1,699th in the South Pacific for Largest Information Technology Sector, scoring 5,904.05 on the Fann-Boi Productivity Index.
