The Empire of Hedya is a massive, efficient nation, remarkable for its compulsory military service and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 3.03 billion Hedyans are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The relatively small, pro-business, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Spirituality. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 13.7%.

The very strong Hedyan economy, worth 182 trillion Hedias a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Automobile Manufacturing, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Average income is 60,284 Hedias, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 184,158 per year while the poor average 15,296, a ratio of 12.0 to 1.

Crime, especially youth-related, is well under control, thanks to a well-funded police force. Hedya's national animal is the White Raven, which can occasionally be seen dodging aircraft in the nation's cities.

Hedya is ranked 59,279th in the world and 3rd in Sekeila for Most Developed, scoring 56.13 on the Human Development Index.
