The Dominion of New Batavian Republic is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Hertog Maria with an iron fist, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, complete lack of prisons, and anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 4.056 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 289 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 85,898th in the world and 9th in Nordisches Kaiserreich for Highest Average Tax Rates, with 28.36 Effective Tax Rate.
