The Republic of New Hiessgart is a huge, socially progressive nation, renowned for its irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 858 million New Hiessgartians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Eiselstein. The average income tax rate is 10.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The New Hiessgartian economy, worth 42.7 trillion Lexis a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Uranium Mining industry, with major contributions from Gambling, Arms Manufacturing, and Tourism. Average income is 49,819 Lexis, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Businesses are abandoning the city centre because of the lack of transport connections, the government has the power to seize property at will, courses in how to boil water are popular for formerly microwave-reliant New Hiessgartians, and homeowners on prime real estate have been seen dodging giant bulldozers with cartoon characters painted on them. Crime is well under control. New Hiessgart's national animal is the Chimera, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

New Hiessgart is ranked 81,515th in the world and 3,068th in the South Pacific for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 1,448.6 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
