The United Republic of Heisenbee is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by John Adama with an iron fist, and remarkable for its infamous sell-swords, triple-decker prams, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 14.767 billion Heiseans are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The relatively small, corrupt government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Industry, Education, and Law & Order also on the agenda, while Environment and Social Policy receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Caldera. The average income tax rate is 73.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Heisean economy, worth a remarkable 5,350 trillion Credits a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Automobile Manufacturing, and Uranium Mining. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 362,311 Credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

The "temporary replacement bus service" is now a permanent fixture, politicians look weirdly alike, wealthy pranksters dump refuse on unsuspecting citizens from up high, and the Heisean delegation to the World Assembly is having a hard time convincing people that international law will "pay for itself somehow...". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Heisenbee's national animal is the Hobbie, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Heisianity.

Heisenbee is ranked 5,616th in the world and 16th in New Western Empire for Most Advanced Public Transport, scoring 4,291.4 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
