The Principality of Saarland-Niederbayern is a huge, efficient nation, remarkable for its rum-swilling pirates, unlimited-speed roads, and flagrant waste-dumping. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 449 million Saarlandic-Lower Bavarians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The tiny, corrupt, pro-business government prioritizes Defense, with Industry, Education, and Law & Order also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Spirituality are ignored. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 4.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Saarland-Niederbayernian economy, worth 60.7 trillion Billiges a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Retail, Information Technology, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Average income is an impressive 135,112 Billiges, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 747,027 per year while the poor average 12,323, a ratio of 60.6 to 1.

Blueriver mercenaries routinely do the army's dirty work, scientists regularly clone human beings for research purposes, fashion magazine covers finally display realistic body images following photo-manipulation becoming illegal, and the military has forsaken terrestrial warfare. Crime is a problem, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Saarland-Niederbayern's national animal is the Kackbratze, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Saarland-Niederbayern is ranked 24,067th in the world and 272nd in Europeia for Most Developed, scoring 78.25 on the Human Development Index.
