The Revolutionary Republic of New Hansa is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Revolutionary Leader with a fair hand, and remarkable for its deadly medical pandemics, public floggings, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 1.849 billion New Hansans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The tiny, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Administration, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Lubeck. The average income tax rate is 6.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming New Hansan economy, worth 211 trillion Ducats a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Retail industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Soda Sales, and Gambling. Average income is an impressive 114,517 Ducats, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

Politicians have to be granted day-release from prison to speak on bills, the NHBI Channel Tunnel project is plagued by delays, the ruling party has a devil of a time keeping order in the ranks, and group hugs break out during floor votes. Crime is moderate, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. New Hansa's national animal is the Ermine, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

New Hansa is ranked 165,365th in the world and 64th in Wintercrest for Most Influential, scoring 53 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
