|Leader||Emperor Jan Var|
The Holy Empire of Herskerstad is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Emperor Jan Var with an iron fist, and remarkable for its public floggings, zero percent divorce rate, and enslaved workforce. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 19.879 billion Herskerstadians are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.
The minute, corrupt, pro-business government, or what there is of one, is dominated by the Department of Defense, although Spirituality and Law & Order are also considered important, while Environment and Social Policy aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Meritocratica. Income tax is unheard of.
The frighteningly efficient Herskerstadian economy, worth a remarkable 5,795 trillion Riksmarks a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is an amazing 291,555 Riksmarks, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,572,989 per year while the poor average 28,043, a ratio of 56.1 to 1.
The nation leads the Rejected Realms in per capita stalking, employers may fire workers without giving any reason, priests are being drafted by the church load, and many parents are becoming frustrated with their children's choices in spouses. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Herskerstad's national animal is the Horse, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Christianity.
