The Empire of Haeroe is a large, orderly nation, renowned for its frequent executions, irreverence towards religion, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 79 million Haeroeans 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."

The medium-sized, moralistic government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 28.4%.

The strong Haeroean economy, worth 4.41 trillion Heron Standardised Credits a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Woodchip Exports, and Automobile Manufacturing. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 55,862 Heron Standardised Credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.2 times as much as the poorest.

The roar of the Niagara 3000 mega-loo can be heard several blocks away, the fire brigade often deal with cases of burnt toast, underground copulation clubs have sprung up in major cities, and life expectancy is way down but posthuman perfectionism is way up. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Haeroe's national animal is the Cardinals, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Haeroe is ranked 90,981st in the world and 3rd in The Heron Federation for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 3.24 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
