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 remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, aversion to nipples, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 3.671 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 11.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Saxonian economy, worth 482 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 131,567 Saxonian Guilders, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 391,774 per year while the poor average 34,619, a ratio of 11.3 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 166,932nd in the world and 405th in Renegade Islands Alliance for Longest Average Lifespans, with 43.38 Years.
