The Stratocratic Duchy of The Lowlands and Saxony is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Frederick-Hendrick van Gilze-Rijen with an iron fist, and renowned for its sprawling nuclear power plants, avowedly heterosexual populace, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 4.586 billion Saxonians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The relatively small, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Industry, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Utrecht. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 15.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Saxonian economy, worth 592 trillion Saxonian Guilders a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Automobile Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 129,228 Saxonian Guilders, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 421,725 per year while the poor average 29,788, a ratio of 14.2 to 1.

Citizens are regularly arrested in queues for 'loitering', internet service is too costly for normal people to purchase, construction of the Really Big Hadron Collider is underway, and the nation's reinforced coffee tables are constructed to survive an atomic blast. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Lowlands and Saxony's national animal is the Heron, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

The Lowlands and Saxony is ranked 154,895th in the world and 187th in Renegade Islands Alliance for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring -9.49 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
