The Democratic Republic of The Batavia is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by President Lars Alexanders with an even hand, and notable for its frequent executions, keen interest in outer space, and irreverence towards religion. The quiet, industrious population of 6.885 billion Batavians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Industry, Education, and Law & Order are also considered important, while Spirituality and International Aid aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Den Haag. The average income tax rate is 46.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Batavian economy, worth 641 trillion Euros a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Trout Farming. Average income is 93,211 Euros, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Devotion to God is only skin-deep, scenic mountain valleys are flooded with water as damming projects get underway, debate rages over whether ground fish guts can be spread on fields, and senior citizens can usually be found doing heavy manual labour. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Batavia's national animal is the Lion, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities, and its national religion is Secularism.

The Batavia is ranked 123,694th in the world and 6th in Northern Ocean for Least Corrupt Governments, with 92.79 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
