The Grand Duchy of Heraswed is a huge, safe nation, renowned for its keen interest in outer space, sprawling nuclear power plants, and parental licensing program. The hard-nosed population of 667 million 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 medium-sized 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 60.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Heraswedian economy, worth 84.0 trillion Heraswedian Piels a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 125,877 Heraswedian Piels, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government is a clear-cut case of tyranny by majority, advertisements read like science journal articles complete with extensive references, interest in globalism never flags, and calling dibs is an unalienable right. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Heraswed's national animal is the Peregrine Falcon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Heraswed is ranked 30,359th in the world and 5th in Confederated Brotherhood of Britannia for Largest Manufacturing Sector, scoring 13,832.43 on the Gooback-Jerbs Productivity Index.
