The Republic of Hiere is a massive, safe nation, remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, digital currency, and suspicion of poets. The democratic, devout population of 1.106 billion Hiereans 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 medium-sized, outspoken government prioritizes Spirituality, with Welfare, Law & Order, and Defense also on the agenda. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Harmona. The average income tax rate is 24.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Hierean economy, worth 60.0 trillion Reins a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Basket Weaving, Pizza Delivery, and Information Technology. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 54,208 Reins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Surrealist houses shaped like mushrooms and volcanoes dominate the wealthiest neighborhoods, wealthy parents-to-be can select their perfect baby, rude retail employees are now even ruder homeless panhandlers, and teenage male videogamers often suffer repetitive strain wrist injuries. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Hiere's national animal is the Buffalo, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

Hiere is ranked 20,811th in the world and 3rd in The Western Colonies for Highest Drug Use, scoring 98 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
