The Most Serene Republic of Herblestan is a huge, efficient nation, remarkable for its closed borders, compulsory military service, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 597 million Herblestanians 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 medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Klubnikagrad. The average income tax rate is 35.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Herblestanian economy, worth 58.6 trillion dodgers a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Woodchip Exports, and Information Technology. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is 98,084 dodgers, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.
Elections have been outlawed, billions are being spent on a new island airport, a cyber-war between file sharers and the music industry formats hard drives across the country, and babysitters are a thing of the past. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Herblestan's national animal is the Herble, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.
