The Coastal Empire of Heraswed is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Prime Minister William Calecino with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, keen interest in outer space, and parental licensing program. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 1.088 billion Heraswedians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Galateion. The average income tax rate is 28.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Heraswedian economy, worth 156 trillion Heraswedian Piels a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 143,391 Heraswedian Piels, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.3 times as much as the poorest.

Bus ads propagandize causes ranging from sexual revolution to religious pogroms, the people are famous throughout the region for their bleached-white teeth, an increasing percentage of the population's youth have homosexual parents, and engineers ask liberal arts majors "Do you want fries with that?". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Heraswed's national animal is the Peregrine Falcon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Heraswed is ranked 45,007th in the world and 4th in Confederated Brotherhood of Britannia for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring 2,423.67 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
