The Holy Empire of HurleOmbre is a huge, orderly nation, ruled by Isabélle Beaurequin de Bourbons with an iron fist, and renowned for its smutty television, complete lack of prisons, and avowedly heterosexual populace. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 826 million Frenches 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 is primarily concerned with Defense, with Spirituality, Law & Order, and Administration also on the agenda, while International Aid isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of FuryDesRavageurs. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 43.9%.

The all-consuming HurleOmbrean economy, worth 94.8 trillion deniers a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 114,789 deniers, with the richest citizens earning 9.3 times as much as the poorest.

Vaccinations are mandatory, postmen have been arrested in job lots for selling junk mail as home insulation, the police are tightening their grip on alcohol smugglers, and drills and shovels have been banned as the government cracks down on any means of fracking. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. HurleOmbre's national animal is the Iguana, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

HurleOmbre is ranked 113,168th in the world and 97th in Barbaria for Highest Economic Output, with 94.8 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
