The Dominion of New Batavian Republic is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Hertog Maria with an iron fist, and renowned for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, prohibition of alcohol, and parental licensing program. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 4.45 billion Batavians are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ypres. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 28.4%.

The all-consuming Batavian economy, worth 318 trillion Livre Sterlings a year, is fairly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Woodchip Exports, Uranium Mining, and Automobile Manufacturing. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is 71,486 Livre Sterlings, with the richest citizens earning 7.1 times as much as the poorest.

The government has become increasingly militant, dictionary sales have hit an all-time high, it's normal to start working life with crippling financial debt, and historical fiction has been banned. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. New Batavian Republic's national animal is the Aquila, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Anglicanisme.

New Batavian Republic is ranked 27,767th in the world and 6th in Nordisches Kaiserreich for Most Efficient Economies, scoring 96.39 on the Krugman-Greenspan Business Outlook Index.
