The Commonwealth of Hergrade is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by The Editor-In-Chief with a fair hand, and remarkable for its otherworldly petting zoo, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless population of 10.641 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 tiny government prioritizes Education, although Industry, Healthcare, and Defense are also considered important, while Spirituality and International Aid receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hergrade Correctional Facility. The average income tax rate is 1.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Hergradean economy, worth a remarkable 3,844 trillion Glass Tales a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 361,259 Glass Tales, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.8 times as much as the poorest.

Pinkerton agents are called in to forcibly break up white collar strikes, sales of pregnancy testing kits are booming, politicians "baring all" for the camera isn't always a figure of speech, and RPG fans reminisce fondly about when people thought they were evil and dangerous rather than geeky and socially inept. Crime is totally unknown. Hergrade's national animal is the Tale, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Hergrade is ranked 69,010th in the world and 5th in The Sands for Nudest, with 135.75 Cheeks Per Square Mile.
