The Federation of The East Indies Company is a huge, efficient nation, notable for its compulsory military service, irreverence towards religion, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 315 million East Indies Citizens live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The very strong East Indies Companyian economy, worth 24.6 trillion VoC Duits 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 Gambling, Information Technology, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is 77,941 VoC Duits, with the richest citizens earning 8.9 times as much as the poorest.
Incarcerated crime lords manage their empires from massage tables, the alarmingly racist TV show 'Bigtopians Say the Darndest Things' is a hit, a valid legal defense is 'dead men tell no tales', and families waiting for delayed pipe installations hope daily for rain. Crime is moderate, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. The East Indies Company's national animal is the Indochinese Tiger.
