The Republic of Hiericho is a huge, socially progressive nation, renowned for its public floggings, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 929 million Jerichites are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Spirituality, and Education. The average income tax rate is 70.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped Jerichite economy, worth 35.6 trillion Jerichoite Dinars 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 Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Tourism. Average income is 38,337 Jerichoite Dinars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

The nationalised Arms Manufacturing Industry is not interested in making weapons, citizens can be frequently spotted going about their business stark naked, the National Art Gallery's newest exhibit is the 500-year old Luna Lisa, and politicians preface their speeches with a declaration that any resemblance to speeches given by individuals living or dead is purely coincidental. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Hiericho's national animal is the Steppe Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Hiericho is ranked 148,648th in the world and 4,914th in Balder for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring -8.49 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
