The Colony of Herringmore is a huge, safe nation, renowned for its state-planned economy, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The cynical population of 252 million Herringmoreans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Law & Order, and Education. The average income tax rate is 67.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Herringmorean economy, worth 2.19 trillion kroners a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Book Publishing, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Average income is 8,677 kroners, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Herringmore's national animal is the herring, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Herringmore is ranked 64,400th in the world and 7th in Regionless for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring 273.25 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
