The Kingdom of Herconia is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by King William I De Gallaecus-Echamon with a fair hand, and remarkable for its smutty television, keen interest in outer space, and daily referendums. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 14.99 billion Herconians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, outspoken government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Xenopolis. The average income tax rate is 83.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Herconian economy, worth 802 trillion Sovereigns a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector is solely comprised of the Book Publishing industry. Average income is 53,559 Sovereigns, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government has declared its commitment to multilateralism, dynamite sales and concert audiences are booming, commuters often break into synchronised para-para dancing for no reason at all, and planes can be grounded for months simply because an inspector "didn't like the color". Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Herconia's national animal is the lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Herconia is ranked 144,632nd in the world and 14th in The Heartland for Largest Pizza Delivery Sector, scoring -7.03 on the Pepperoni Propulsion Productivity Index.
