The Collectivist Republic of Herten is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Kanzler Hadwan Ramad with an iron fist, and notable for its zero percent divorce rate, pith helmet sales, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 4.542 billion Hertenians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government prioritizes Education, with Law & Order, Healthcare, and Administration also on the agenda, while Spirituality is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Herten Mitte. The average income tax rate is 98.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Hertenian economy, worth 862 trillion Herts a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 189,846 Herts, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Bowling teams spend more time looking at their phones than the pins, it's usual for grandparents to stay in the family home with their descendants but younger children are often frightened of them, the youth vote is only counted when kindergarten teachers ask who drew the best picture, and citizens are deployed to barren deserts to protect small territorial claims. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Herten's national animal is the Deer, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Herten is ranked 287,486th in the world and 52nd in Civiles Conservare for Most Rebellious Youth, scoring -39 on the Stark-Dean Displacement Index.
