The Wielderdom of Hrythingia is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Hrythwalda Wynmar II Earl of the Ashwold with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, ubiquitous missile silos, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, devout population of 1.629 billion Hrythingas are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Spirituality, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ernburgh. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 32.3%.

The powerhouse Hrystic economy, worth 151 trillion Gyldas a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Cheese Exports. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 93,240 Gyldas, with the richest citizens earning 9.8 times as much as the poorest.

The navy plans patrols according to how many pubs nearby ports have, belligerent citizens shoot at passing clouds for 'violating their airspace', pocket dialling is a criminal offence, and the government is constantly producing new maps to accommodate the continual renaming of cities. Crime, especially youth-related, is relatively low, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. Hrythingia's national animal is the White Bull, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Hrystic Catholicism.

Hrythingia is ranked 12,763rd in the world and 33rd in The Western Isles for Largest Manufacturing Sector, scoring 21,949.08 on the Gooback-Jerbs Productivity Index.
