The Kingdom of Himmelburg is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by King Ferdinand II with an even hand, and renowned for its daily referendums, compulsory military service, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 4.885 billion Himmelburgians 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 enormous government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Administration, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kristiansburg. The average income tax rate is 70.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Himmelburgian economy, worth 254 trillion Thalers a year, is led by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Trout Farming, Pizza Delivery, and Uranium Mining. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 52,132 Thalers, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The Treasury has been accused of flushing money down the toilet, protesters are up in arms over new nuclear power stations, the Ministry of Health has reported a sharp increase in the incidence of delayed menopause, and armed war-criminals gain asylum if deemed 'fabulous' enough. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Himmelburg's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Christianity.

Himmelburg is ranked 247,998th in the world and 972nd in 10000 Islands for Most Avoided, scoring 1.08 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
