The Republic of Herbert Island is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its parental licensing program, ban on automobiles, and daily referendums. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 554 million Herbert Islandians 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 medium-sized government prioritizes Education, although Industry, Administration, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Spirituality is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Moribund. The average income tax rate is 37.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Herbert Islandian economy, worth 68.1 trillion Gummibearshums a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 122,860 Gummibearshums, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

Herbert Islandian housewives become unusually flustered when thinking about Leader, the new 'Things We Stole From Other Countries' exhibition at the National Museum of Antiquities is a hit, the World Republic Games have been won again by Herbert Island as no other country cares enough to compete, and centuries-old marble buildings are being torn down and replaced with corrugated steel wind tunnels. Crime is totally unknown. Herbert Island's national animal is the Aardvark, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Herbert Island is ranked 162,819th in the world and 7,437th in the South Pacific for Fattest Citizens, with 5.96 Obesity Rate.
