OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Weyland Corporation of Heinekenbier is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, ruled by Dear Leader with an iron fist, and remarkable for its superstitious fear of technology. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 24.704 billion Heinekenbierians 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."

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt, moralistic government stops and the rest of society begins, but it is mainly concerned with Defence, although Law & Order and Commerce are secondary priorities. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Heinekenbier City. The average income tax rate is 100%. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Uranium Mining industry.

Billions of bottle caps are being blown on orbital weapons development, the country has been 'going shopping' by annexing nearby nations for their resources, Heinekenbier's army is full of two-metre tall super-soldiers, and fewer people are bathing as citizens must show ration stamps before they can turn on their faucets. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. Heinekenbier's national animal is the oxygen molecule, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, its national religion is Dear Leaders' Cult, and its currency is the bottle cap.

Heinekenbier is ranked 103rd in Nederland and 111,610th in the world for Most Cultured, scoring -225 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
