The Democratic Republic of Heatherspike is a huge, genial nation, notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, national health service, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 491 million Heatherspikeans enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lechester. The average income tax rate is 42.7%.

The thriving Heatherspikean economy, worth 30.3 trillion Pound Sterlings a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Uranium Mining industry, with major contributions from Basket Weaving, Retail, and Automobile Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 61,777 Pound Sterlings, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.2 times as much as the poorest.

Handsome young men are forced into uniforms by their dominant elders, citizens are allowed to rise or fall based on their own merits, you can't put down the nation's attitude to pet health, and antique comic book collectors are disappointed to hear that their treasures are worth exactly as little as their mothers said they were. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Heatherspike's national animal is the tiger, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Heatherspike is ranked 166,630th in the world and 2,889th in The East Pacific for Highest Economic Output, with 30.3 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
