The Military Dictatorship of Mandatory Herding is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Trumpette Trunkyface with an iron fist, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, state-planned economy, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, cynical population of 1.936 billion Herdlings 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 enormous, corrupt, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Administration, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Deepest Herding. The average income tax rate is 84.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Herdinged economy, worth 166 trillion peanuts 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 Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Average income is 86,028 peanuts, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Hospitals scramble for new disinfectants following a ban on rubbing alcohol, dog breeding has been banned in accordance with recent animal experimentation laws, government theft from poor artists to give to rich allies has been dubbed the "reverse Robin Hood" policy, and no personal detail is too tiny for the suede-denim census police. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Mandatory Herding's national animal is the elephant, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Mandatory Herding is ranked 277,212th in the world and 6,593rd in The East Pacific for Highest Disposable Incomes, with 13,162.38 Standard Monetary Units.
