The Democratic Republic of The Batavia is a massive, safe nation, ruled by President Lars Alexanders with an even hand, and notable for its daily referendums, absence of drug laws, and suspicion of poets. The compassionate population of 4.222 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 prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order, Education, and Industry also on the agenda, 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 42.5%.

The thriving Batavian economy, worth 306 trillion Euros a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Automobile Manufacturing, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 72,574 Euros, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.6 times as much as the poorest.

Teachers are routinely tested to keep their jobs, drills and shovels have been banned as the government cracks down on any means of fracking, a recent political speech drew the ire of nerds everywhere after the speaker claimed that Darth Vader was Harry Potter's father, and the hills are alive with the sound of ringtones. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Batavia's national animal is the Dragon, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Atheism.

The Batavia is ranked 45,113th in the world and 4th in Valentine Day for Most Efficient Economies, scoring 84.56 on the Krugman-Greenspan Business Outlook Index.
