The Queendom of Birthday Cake Herby is a huge, safe nation, renowned for its otherworldly petting zoo, public floggings, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The compassionate population of 668 million Birthday Cake Herbys have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. The average income tax rate is 59.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Birthday Caked economy, worth 52.1 trillion frosted gas pedals a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Arms Manufacturing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 77,953 frosted gas pedals, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

Birthday Caked husbands are dead good at fathering kids, an aboriginal talking stick is used for leaders' debates at election time, drugs containing the compound "oleum de serpens" are being sold to cancer patients, and private businesses are paving paradises to put up parking lots. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Birthday Cake Herby's national animal is the edible flat tire, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Birthday Cake Herby is ranked 128,931st in the world and 71st in The Kaiserreich for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring 6.1 on the Hayek Index.
