The Republic of Heken is a massive, safe nation, ruled by TR with an even hand, and notable for its digital currency, daily referendums, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 3.991 billion Hekenians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Theodoreville. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 21.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Hekenian economy, worth 997 trillion שחלs a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an amazing 249,945 שחלs, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,036,445 per year while the poor average 39,515, a ratio of 26.2 to 1.

TR spends weekends doing the laundry of foreign leaders, exorbitant spending on icebreakers breaks the ice at every budget meeting, warfare increasingly resembles a video game, and the Supreme Court vehemently protects civil rights and the right to privacy. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Heken's national animal is the Agricultural Landbeast, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is None.

Heken is ranked 161,930th in the world and 8,823rd in The North Pacific for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 38.94 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
