The Republic of Heken is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by TR with an even hand, and notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, pith helmet sales, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 4.841 billion Hekenians 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 relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Theodoreville. The average income tax rate is 36.6%.
The frighteningly efficient Hekenian economy, worth a remarkable 1,242 trillion שחלs a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an amazing 256,666 שחלs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.3 times as much as the poorest.
The family summer vacation has become a thing of the past following the introduction of the year-round school year, nuclear physics is the most popular course at university, the nation has opened its arms to an influx of refugees, and school children declare that teachers "may confiscate our toys but they can never take our FREEDOM". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Heken's national animal is the Agricultural Landbeast, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is None.
