The Holy Empire of Hesskin Empire is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Emperor Stephan II Durnstein with an even hand, and renowned for its parental licensing program, national health service, and complete lack of prisons. The compassionate population of 10.322 billion Hesskin are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous government prioritizes Education, with Defense, Healthcare, and Welfare also on the agenda, while Spirituality is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Scottsville. The average income tax rate is 89.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Hesskin economy, worth a remarkable 1,192 trillion Hesskin Credits 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 Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 115,544 Hesskin Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Many friends and relatives of Emperor Stephan II Durnstein have been given ambassador jobs in tropical island nations, internet moderator is one of the most popular jobs among the nation's more socially awkward citizens, international terrorists often get their weapons supply in Hesskin Empire, and cutting-edge missile systems are being retrofitted to twin-prop air force biplanes. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Hesskin Empire's national animal is the Jaguar, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Hesskin Empire is ranked 81,243rd in the world and 28th in Hartfelden for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 147,517 Standard Monetary Units.
