The Republic of New Hiessgart is a very large, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, irreverence towards religion, and suspicion of poets. The hard-working, democratic population of 148 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 tiny, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 9.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The New Hiessgartian economy, worth 7.16 trillion Lexis a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Uranium Mining industry, with major contributions from Automobile Manufacturing, Gambling, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is 48,381 Lexis, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

The citizenship exam requires years of study to actually pass, excessive wheelchair ramps on government buildings have been compared to theme park attractions, the nation is ravaged by daily union strikes, and young children are regularly seen wagering pocket money at blackjack tables. Crime is relatively low. New Hiessgart's national animal is the Chimera, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

New Hiessgart is ranked 117,971st in the world and 2,735th in the South Pacific for Highest Economic Output, with 7.16 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
