The Dominion of Heillblod is a huge, orderly nation, renowned for its smutty television, ubiquitous missile silos, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 573 million Heillblodians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Spirituality. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ageatiboer. The average income tax rate is 88.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Heillblodian economy, worth 23.2 trillion Penningrs a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, highly specialized black market in Gambling, Furniture Restoration, and Pizza Delivery. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. State-owned companies are the norm. Average income is 40,484 Penningrs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Etiquette guides advise visitors to 'grovel gracefully', religious bigotry and a fear of outsiders have replaced religious studies in schools, debates on whether toilet seats should be left up or down are increasingly commonplace, and historical fiction has been banned. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Heillblod's national animal is the Wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Heillblod is ranked 170,890th in the world and 72nd in Nazi Europa for Most Stationary, with 5.25560080308 Days.
