The Commonwealth of Hergrade is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by The Editor-In-Chief with a fair hand, and notable for its unlimited-speed roads, pith helmet sales, and anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless population of 14.596 billion Hergradites 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 government prioritizes Education, although Industry, Healthcare, and Defense are also considered important, while Spirituality and International Aid are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hergrade Correctional Facility. The average income tax rate is 8.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Hergradean economy, worth a remarkable 5,261 trillion Glass Tales a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Retail. Average income is an amazing 360,469 Glass Tales, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.8 times as much as the poorest.

East Lebatuckese astronauts' favorite game during downtime on the Multinational Space Station is 'I Spy', the digital money revolution has cashed out, kindergartners' favourite dance move is the stop-drop-and-roll, and tourists need only sign on the dotted line to become citizens. Crime is totally unknown. Hergrade's national animal is the Tale, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Hergrade is ranked 47,118th in the world and 2nd in The Sands for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring 3,110.8 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
