The People's Republic of Hepek is a huge, genial nation, ruled by President with a fair hand, and renowned for its otherworldly petting zoo, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and ubiquitous missile silos. The compassionate, democratic population of 808 million Hepekians 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 Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hepek City. The average income tax rate is 74.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Hepekian economy, worth 92.5 trillion marks a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 114,490 marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Dozens of additional foreign policy specialists have been sent to the country's WA Mission, computer users are buried daily in thousands of unsolicited emails, group photos of the members of parliament are often mistaken for family reunions, and the nation is automatically assumed to be the source of all unmarked weapons. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Hepek's national animal is the fox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Hepek is ranked 196,866th in the world and 5,521st in The North Pacific for Largest Black Market, with 23.1 billion Standard Monetary Units.
