The Nomadic Volkswagen Beetles of Herby is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by CEO Matthias Müller with an even hand, and remarkable for its pith helmet sales, suspicion of poets, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed population of 20.002 billion Herbys enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The medium-sized, corrupt, liberal government prioritizes Healthcare, although Industry, Law & Order, and Administration are also considered important, while Environment and Spirituality receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Autobahn. The average income tax rate is 39.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Herbyian economy, worth a remarkable 2,488 trillion gas pedals a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Soda Sales. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 124,409 gas pedals, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Brazen mayors claim official expenses to pay for their drug habits, billion-gas pedal sentient AI killbots roll through the streets dispensing hot dogs and T-shirts, wait staff claim to like it when odorous customers flirt with them, and the family of CEO Matthias Müller bite their thumbs at paparazzi intrusions. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Herby's national animal is the flat tire, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Herby is ranked 11,595th in the world and 3rd in One big Island for Most Avoided, scoring 130.06 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
