The People's Jamahiriya of Herzliyya is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by the Herzliyyan People's Vanguard with a fair hand, and renowned for its national health service, sprawling nuclear power plants, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, humorless population of 36.655 billion Herzliyyans enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Verda Urbo. The average income tax rate is 99.3%.

The all-consuming Herzliyyan economy, worth a remarkable 6,193 trillion herzls a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 168,966 herzls, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Therapists can always squeeze in another house-call, when electric cars arrived nobody heard them coming, in life full of care there is no time to stop and stare, and pre-takeoff checks last longer than the flights themselves. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Herzliyya's national animal is the giraffe, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Herzliyya is ranked 1,195th in the world and 49th in The North Pacific for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 33,245.18 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
