The Democratic Commonwealth of Hessere is a massive, safe nation, ruled by David Joslynn Carroll with a fair hand, and renowned for its complete lack of prisons, smutty television, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 3.246 billion Hessereans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large government is primarily concerned with Education, although Environment, Healthcare, and Administration are also considered important, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hesser Civitate. The average income tax rate is 83.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Hesserean economy, worth 376 trillion Hesserean Dollars a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 116,097 Hesserean Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The internet has been placed under government control, even religious militants can be swayed by the power of #love, every product goes through extensive safety-testing by the government, and the nation has nearly as many history museums as Hessereans. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Hessere's national animal is the Golden Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Hessere is ranked 7,701st in the world and 199th in the West Pacific for Smartest Citizens, with 98.91 Quips Per Hour.
