The Grand Duchy of Hearts Of Iron 4 is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Phil Swift with an even hand, and remarkable for its public floggings, frequent executions, and lack of airports. The hard-nosed, humorless, devout population of 2.425 billion Flex Fams are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Flex Tape. The average income tax rate is 55.8%.

The powerhouse Hearts Of Iron 4ian economy, worth 238 trillion Slaves 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, quite specialized black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. 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 98,451 Slaves, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.0 times as much as the poorest.

Citizens who fail to follow the official national religion are executed, the state auctions off combat drones to fund war reparations, children entertain themselves by throwing rocks through the windows of world-class museums, and Phil Swift is refusing to make decisions until the Moon is out of Capricorn. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Hearts Of Iron 4's national animal is the Slave, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Flex Glue.

Hearts Of Iron 4 is ranked 14,577th in the world and 36th in Spiritus for Most Devout, with 1,567.93 Prayers Per Hour.
