The Free Land of Anarchic States of the Heartland is a massive, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its daily referendums, suspicion of poets, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 2.729 billion Anarchic States of the Heartlandians live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

There is no government in the normal sense of the word; however, a small group of community-minded, pro-business individuals is primarily concerned with Industry, although Administration is also considered important, while Law & Order and Welfare are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Des Moines. Income tax is unheard of.

The very strong Anarchic States of the Heartlandian economy, worth 201 trillion Bitcoins a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is fairly diversified and led by the Soda Sales industry, with major contributions from Retail, Uranium Mining, and Information Technology. Average income is 73,912 Bitcoins, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 425,538 per year while the poor average 6,153, a ratio of 69.2 to 1.

Politicians have been known to swim in pools filled with Bitcoins, recognised healthcare professionals treat diabetes with a grain of sugar in a barrel of water, heavy industry must go to expensive lengths to dispose of waste, and beggars on the street are often heard asking for spare votes. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Anarchic States of the Heartland's national animal is the North Eastern Diamond back rattler, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Anarchic States of the Heartland is ranked 219,176th in the world and 16th in Capitalist Libertarian Freedom Region for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring -13.04 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
