The Unitary Sovereign Republic of The Hanzanburg Union is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by President Hansen Heinrichson with an even hand, and remarkable for its frequent executions, ritual sacrifices, and otherworldly petting zoo. The compassionate, hard-working, devout population of 7.764 billion Hanzanburgians 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 large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Administration, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hansenborough City. The average income tax rate is 97.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Hanzanburgian economy, worth a remarkable 1,582 trillion Hanzanburgian Zandmarks a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Tourism. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 203,843 Hanzanburgian Zandmarks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The new national mascot has to be wheeled onto the field of play, museums stand half-empty as all foreign exhibits are returned to their countries of origin, any secret that gets off someone's chest is promptly replaced, and hospitals have poor data security but send lots of bodies to be encrypted. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Hanzanburg Union's national animal is the Legendary Golden Emperor Dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Buddhist.

The Hanzanburg Union is ranked 6,733rd in the world and 1st in Alliance Nation League for Most Corrupt Governments, with 143.72 kickbacks per hour.
