The Second Republic of New Herdon is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Frederick Reeds with an even hand, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, deadly medical pandemics, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 2.278 billion Herdonians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.
The tiny, corrupt, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Defense, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Herdonia. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 4.1%.
The frighteningly efficient New Herdonian economy, worth 451 trillion Herdonian Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Soda Sales. Average income is an impressive 198,069 Herdonian Dollars, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,316,312 per year while the poor average 11,387, a ratio of 115 to 1.
Robotic spouses prove to be just as imperfect as flesh and blood ones, EpiPen sales have skyrocketed, legislators must raise their hands if they want to speak, and international terrorists often get their weapons supply in New Herdon. Crime is totally unknown. New Herdon's national animal is the Eagle, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Capitalism.
