The Cluncil and Helth Shop of HMS NHS is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Queen Ava of Nightingale with an iron fist, and remarkable for its compulsory military service, rampant corporate plagiarism, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 2.17 billion Patients are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nightingale. The average income tax rate is 65.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Patientien economy, worth 272 trillion Viruses a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Retail, and Uranium Mining. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 125,703 Viruses, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Scientists regularly clone human beings for research purposes, amorous nobles always bring the same disappointing gift to weddings, buses are widely regarded as the safest way to travel, and sleep-deprived officials are known to collapse after late night revision for their examinations. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. HMS NHS's national animal is the Guinea Pig, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities, and its national religion is Scientism.

HMS NHS is ranked 16,808th in the world and 74th in Confederation of Corrupt Dictators for Most Developed, scoring 85.68 on the Human Development Index.
