The Constitutional Monarchy of The Hinterplace is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Queen Anavaere III with a fair hand, and remarkable for its ban on automobiles, daily referendums, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 8.778 billion Hinteriens hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Arrièrepays. The average income tax rate is 74.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Hinterien economy, worth a remarkable 1,107 trillion Gold Marks a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 126,183 Gold Marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government helps teach children how to kill a man from six paces, excessive wheelchair ramps on government buildings have been compared to theme park attractions, doctors prescribe medicines but they rarely dispense hope or compassion, and the World Constitutional Monarchy Games have been won again by The Hinterplace as no other country cares enough to compete. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Hinterplace's national animal is the White Lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is a'Luir.

The Hinterplace is ranked 30,790th in the world and 34th in Empire of Great Britain for Lowest Crime Rates, with 82.27 law-abiding acts per hour.
