The Federation of Hepner is a massive, efficient nation, notable for its compulsory military service, suspicion of poets, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 2.043 billion Hepnerians are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The minute, pro-business, well-organized government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Healthcare. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 5.0%.

The thriving Hepnerian economy, worth 152 trillion Pens a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Pizza Delivery industry, with major contributions from Furniture Restoration, Basket Weaving, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is 74,725 Pens, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 264,505 per year while the poor average 15,242, a ratio of 17.4 to 1.

The government has cut its subsidies for all special interest groups, the government's official stance on religion is that it is so very silly, tensions between the young and old have risen to record levels, and Leader has just been declared ruler of Hepner in an international press conference. Crime is a problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Hepner's national animal is the Paper, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

Hepner is ranked 13,742nd in the world and 26th in Europeia for Most Pro-Market, scoring 80 on the Rand Index.
