The Protectorate of The Dutch East India Co is a huge, orderly nation, remarkable for its enslaved workforce, suspicion of poets, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 578 million Corporatists are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The tiny, pro-business, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Industry, Law & Order, and Education are also considered important, while International Aid and Spirituality are ignored. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 5.5%.

The powerhouse Corporatist economy, worth 45.4 trillion guilders a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Uranium Mining industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Gambling, and Pizza Delivery. Average income is 78,473 guilders, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 367,859 per year while the poor average 9,983, a ratio of 36.8 to 1.

Child adoption by homosexual couples has been outlawed, immigrant Maxtopians are routinely sold on popular internet auction sites, citizens are frequently held up at gunpoint by their local pizza delivery boys, and there is a growing belief that consciousness is a simulated illusion within a computer-generated reality. Crime is a serious problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. The Dutch East India Co's national animal is the falcon, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

The Dutch East India Co is ranked 37,546th in the world and 1,820th in The North Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 62.39 on the Human Development Index.
