The Republic of New Hiessgart is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Philip Gargantos Armstrong with a fair hand, and renowned for its burgeoning Chimera population. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 1.11 billion New Hiessgartians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The relatively small 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 12.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The strong New Hiessgartian economy, worth 61.1 trillion Lexis a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Uranium Mining industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Gambling. Average income is 55,000 Lexis, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Running away is an essential part of the elite forces' hand-to-hand training, a ban on unsolicited cold calling in all forms is in effect, matryoshka dolls resembling nested Death Stars are commonly sold, and no personal detail is too tiny for the suede-denim census police. 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 140,546th in the world and 4,884th in Balder for Most Extreme, scoring 9.38 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
