The Society of New Babel of The Greater Low Countries is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Grand Assembly with a fair hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, ubiquitous missile silos, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 1.991 billion Groot-Nederlandens 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 juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of City of Grand Unity. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 46.9%.

The all-consuming Groot-Nederlandian economy, worth 283 trillion Guilders a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 142,608 Guilders, with the richest citizens earning 7.0 times as much as the poorest.

Giggling teens are asked to put their mouths on rubber dolls, bouncers at the door of the sweet shop warn five-year-olds not to cause trouble, the government spends more on chasing distant comets than on basic infrastructure, and corporate lobbying has been outlawed. Crime is totally unknown. The Greater Low Countries's national animal is the eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Triune Deification.

The Greater Low Countries is ranked 41,248th in the world and 7th in The Clover Confederation for Most Advanced Defense Forces, scoring 3,067.66 on the Total War Preparedness Rating.
