The Star Empire of Huerdae is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Emperor Niko'Dohsa with an iron fist, and renowned for its anti-smoking policies, free-roaming dinosaurs, and otherworldly petting zoo. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 26.882 billion Huerdaen are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The minute, socially-minded, well-organized government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Helsearc. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Huerdaen economy, worth a remarkable 8,361 trillion Huerdaen Ingots a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 311,054 Huerdaen Ingots, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Asking 'does my bum look big in this?' leads to 30 hours of self-esteem classes, when people ask what the difference is between politicians and lawyers they are referred to document c15(iv) section 14.1 subsection 3.2 of the Jan 2015 political category definition guidance codes, the government has adopted a "Lightning Never Strikes Twice" approach to dealing with natural disasters, and government fact-checkers use surprising amounts of high explosive. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Huerdae's national animal is the Hercules Beetle, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is The Spirit of Man.

Huerdae is ranked 2,913th in the world and 3rd in Limitless Universe for Most Developed, scoring 96.76 on the Human Development Index.
