The Oppressed Peoples of HMS NHS is a huge, cultured nation, notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, rampant corporate plagiarism, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 341 million Patients are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nightingale. The average income tax rate is 41.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Patientien economy, worth 37.1 trillion Viruses a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Retail. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 108,880 Viruses, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Insanely good theatre productions face government censorship, sexually-starved male dinosaurs terrorise tourists during weekly breakouts from Mesozoic Park, hit TV show 'The eXecution Factor' is a critical success, and the cancellation of "The Real Vixens of Nightingale" has been described as a real blow for entertainment. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. HMS NHS's national animal is the Guinea Pig, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

HMS NHS is ranked 24,936th in the world and 150th in Confederation of Corrupt Dictators for Lowest Crime Rates, with 77.09 Law-abiding Acts Per Hour.
