The Stratocratic Duchy of The Lowlands and Saxony is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Frederick-Hendrick van Gilze-Rijen with an iron fist, and notable for its anti-smoking policies, digital currency, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 3.462 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 11.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Saxonian economy, worth 454 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 131,414 Saxonian Guilders, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 397,211 per year while the poor average 33,852, a ratio of 11.7 to 1.

Surrealist houses shaped like mushrooms and volcanoes dominate the wealthiest neighborhoods, visions of giant pink Herons are a common side effect after Saxonians eat their meals, the people are famous throughout the region for their bleached-white teeth, and citizens are regularly arrested in queues for 'loitering'. 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 6,985th in the world and 11th in Renegade Islands Alliance for Largest Black Market, with 38.0 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
