The His Majesty's Colony of The Batavian Islands is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by King Jozef III of the Herrebrugh Islands with an even hand, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, unlimited-speed roads, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 15.234 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 relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nieuw-Vreedtwijck. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 18.8%.

The thriving Batavian economy, worth a remarkable 1,092 trillion guilders a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Woodchip Exports, Automobile Manufacturing, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Average income is 71,722 guilders, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 226,065 per year while the poor average 17,395, a ratio of 13.0 to 1.

The Batavian Islands's navy has been named the scourge of the seven thousand seas, the nation's infamous boot camp is more brutal than most battlefields, tourists flock to see the giant stone carvings of The Batavian Islands's historical leaders at Mount Rushless, and prominent cultural symbols are featured on the backs of cereal boxes. Crime is almost non-existent, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Batavian Islands's national animal is the elephant, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is the Netherdutch Batavian Reformed Church.

The Batavian Islands is ranked 160,197th in the world and 127th in Democratic Socialist Assembly for Most Authoritarian, with 492.75 milliStalins.
