The United Island Republics of Hirematia is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Premier Meccai Vijaranam with a fair hand, and remarkable for its daily referendums, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 9.321 billion Hirematiyaalaa are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rumekota. The average income tax rate is 90.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Hirematiyaale economy, worth a remarkable 1,095 trillion rupiyas 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 Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 117,553 rupiyas, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Therapists can always squeeze in another house-call, many whiskies taste suspiciously like automobile radiators, the silencing of dissent speaks volumes about the quality of Hirematiyaale democracy, and Hirematiyaale tourists are encouraged to hand out spare condoms to locals while on vacation. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Hirematia's national animal is the crab-eating macaque, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Hirematia is ranked 239,060th in the world and 189th in The Social Liberal Union for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -20.52 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
