The Great Heroist Nation of Heroism is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its public floggings, complete lack of prisons, and suspicion of poets. The cynical population of 5.994 billion Heroists are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Public Transport. The average income tax rate is 77.0%.

The strong Heroist economy, worth 287 trillion Abilities a year, is highly specialized and led by the Door-to-door Insurance Sales industry, with significant contributions from Soda Sales, Uranium Mining, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Black market activity is notable. Average income is 48,029 Abilities, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.2 times as much as the poorest.

Carbon-footprint restrictions are making businesses walk, busy commuters no longer hear the cries of "I want some more!" on the nation's streets, mantis shrimp studies is academia's fastest growing field, and rubber stamp emojis are the new craze. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Heroism's national animal is the Villain, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Heroism is ranked 140,667th in the world and 4,890th in Lazarus for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring -5.28 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
