Ascendancy of Heria

Population1.299 billion

LeaderDavid Hellford


The Allied States of Ascendancy of Heria is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by David Hellford with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, ubiquitous missile silos, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 1.299 billion Herians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Eden. The average income tax rate is 39.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Herian economy, worth 134 trillion Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Trout Farming, and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 103,834 Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Tradesmen will knock 10% off their fees if customers pay cash, citizens are deployed to barren deserts to protect small territorial claims, you need two tenors and a coloratura contralto to sing the national anthem properly, and politicians "baring all" for the camera isn't always a figure of speech. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Ascendancy of Heria's national animal is the Panther, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Ascendancy of Heria is ranked 189,208th in the world and 142nd in New Western Empire for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 1.75 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
