The Sexy Funland of Hetairaea is a massive, genial nation, ruled by President Gwen Matisch with a fair hand, and notable for its smutty television, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 3.099 billion Hetairaeans 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 medium-sized, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Welfare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Shangri-La. The average income tax rate is 76.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Hetairaean economy, worth 605 trillion Sauces a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 195,473 Sauces, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

Doctors spend more time writing sick notes than caring for the sick, there are six more weeks of winter if a northerner sees his shadow, new safety regulations require all cars manufactured in Hetairaea to be bombproof, and bouncers at the door of the sweet shop warn five-year-olds not to cause trouble. Crime is totally unknown. Hetairaea's national animal is the Succubus, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is communal loving.

Hetairaea is ranked 6,708th in the world and 24th in The Free Nations Region for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring 2,326.87 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
