The Stratocratic Duchy of The Lowlands and Saxony is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Frederick-Hendrick van Gilze-Rijen with an iron fist, and renowned for its closed borders, digital currency, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 5.506 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, 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 15.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Saxonian economy, worth 752 trillion Saxonian Guilders a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Automobile Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Tourism. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 136,662 Saxonian Guilders, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 439,552 per year while the poor average 32,182, a ratio of 13.7 to 1.

The credibility of anti-government demagogues is undermined by government claims that they smell like poo, the "war on terror" doesn't seem to be making Saxonians any less frightened, earthquake sirens are a leading cause of hearing loss, and no cul-de-sac or trailer park is complete without a gambling parlor. 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 soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

The Lowlands and Saxony is ranked 17,602nd in the world and 14th in Renegade Islands Alliance for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring 4,927.91 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
