The Colourful Hindu Kingdom of Saffron and Lotus is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Mahārāja Babu Sengupta with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, daily referendums, and national health service. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 2.917 billion Hindus hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bombay. The average income tax rate is 81.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Hindu economy, worth 408 trillion rupees a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 139,958 rupees, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Referenda are held for every conceivable government action, the request to "give us our daily bread" can only be fulfilled six days out of seven, t-shirts displaying a photo of Mahārāja Babu Sengupta performing the Full-Monty are selling out, and the sound of office water cooler chatter has been replaced by the whirring of computer cooling fans. Crime is totally unknown. Saffron and Lotus's national animal is the Bengal Tiger, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Hinduism.

Saffron and Lotus is ranked 36,873rd in the world and 19th in The Horde for Most Influential, scoring 784 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
