The Elder Bastion of Mediocrity of King HEM is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by HEM Tiberius with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls. The compassionate, intelligent population of 16.59 billion King HEMians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it devotes most of its attentions to Education, with areas such as Religion & Spirituality and Commerce receiving almost no funds by comparison. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Legionaires. The average income tax rate is 96%. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Book Publishing industry.

A new generation of aquariumless hotels are being built under government supervision, all telephone traffic is monitored for 'national security reasons', citizens are forbidden from leaving the country, and the government is pouring money into 'Operation Enduring Democracy'. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. King HEM's national animal is the fox, which is also the nation's favorite main course, its national religion is Christianity, and its currency is the euro.

King HEM is ranked 141st in Europeia and 17,044th in the world for Most Subsidized Industry, scoring 31 on the Gilded Widget Scale.
