The Holy Golden horde of Hearts Of Iron 4 is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Santa with an even hand, and remarkable for its complete lack of prisons, rampant corporate plagiarism, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless, devout population of 3.343 billion Flex Fams 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 large, 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 67.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Hearts Of Iron 4ian economy, worth 351 trillion Candy caneses 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 an enormous, deeply entrenched black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Beef-Based Agriculture. 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 105,259 Candy caneses, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Unpackaged foodstuffs rot on store shelves, mining is the nation's most dangerous occupation, elevator music has been replaced by thrash metal played at maximum volume, and all work and no play has rendered the nation's children somewhat intelligent but also remarkably dull. 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 Reindeer, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Flex Glue.

Hearts Of Iron 4 is ranked 96,331st in the world and 18th in Bradania for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 1,818.53 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
