The Most Serene Republic of Herblestan is a huge, efficient nation, remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, ubiquitous missile silos, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 461 million Herblestanians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.
The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Klubnikagrad. The average income tax rate is 24.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Herblestanian economy, worth 46.1 trillion dodgers a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 100,099 dodgers, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.
Citizens finish cleaning up after the annual National Treasure Hunt just in time for the next one, private pharmacies close down as medicinal drugs are given away freely by the government, the government is lending a hand to private industry, and visual acuity is worsening amongst teenagers. Crime, especially youth-related, is almost non-existent. Herblestan's national animal is the Herble, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.
