The Queen's State of Heraclea is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, absence of drug laws, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 14.595 billion Heracleans live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The minute, liberal, pro-business, outspoken government, or what there is of one, is solely concerned with Industry. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 4.8%.

The very strong Heraclean economy, worth 647 trillion betales a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is quite specialized and led by the Uranium Mining industry, with significant contributions from Woodchip Exports, Arms Manufacturing, and Retail. Average income is 44,369 betales, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 301,659 per year while the poor average 2,384, a ratio of 126 to 1.

Voting is voluntary, the country's famous rainforests are being bulldozed by the mining industry, and military funding has been stripped back. Crime is a major problem, probably because of the absence of a police force. Heraclea's national animal is the deer, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Heraclea is ranked 88,028th in the world and 4th in Praia for Most Secular, with 17.37 Atheism Rate.
