The Nomadic Volkswagen Beetles of Herby is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by CEO Matthias Müller with a fair hand, and notable for its vat-grown people, unlimited-speed roads, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 9.613 billion Herbys 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 prioritizes Industry, with Law & Order, Healthcare, and Administration also on the agenda, while Environment and Spirituality aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Autobahn. The average income tax rate is 9.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Herbyian economy, worth a remarkable 1,128 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 notable. Average income is an impressive 117,420 gas pedals, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.5 times as much as the poorest.

Prisoners can't do number twos without their "toilet buddy" present, Dogman-branded weapons are all the rage in the militaristic comic-book community, the freedom to be free is always just out of reach, and the government has implemented minimum wage laws. Crime is totally unknown. Herby's national animal is the flat tire, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Herby is ranked 16,571st in the world and 3rd in SatW union for Most Corrupt Governments, with 57.78 Kickbacks Per Hour.
