The Free Land of Hiems is a huge, efficient nation, notable for its keen interest in outer space, irreverence towards religion, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 546 million Hiemsians live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.
The relatively small, liberal, pro-business, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Defense, and Education. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 12.2%.
The frighteningly efficient Hiemsian economy, worth 57.6 trillion Crystals a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with significant contributions from Soda Sales, Gambling, and Arms Manufacturing. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an impressive 105,501 Crystals, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 501,756 per year while the poor average 13,063, a ratio of 38.4 to 1.
A government program is underway to revitalize Hiems's beaches, Leader's recent "I have a dream that we will fight them by raking muck on the beaches" speech seems a little derivative to many, photos of picturesque coastal buildings are set against a backdrop of smokestacks and ship hulls, and murderers frequently escape punishment by claiming they were protecting their honour. Crime, especially youth-related, is pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. Hiems's national animal is the Orca, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to heavy metals seepage into national waterways.
