Of Herbshire

Population11.603 billion

LeaderMordechai Yanukovich


The Commonwealth of Of Herbshire is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Mordechai Yanukovich with an even hand, and notable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, cheerful, devout population of 11.603 billion Herbshirians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The large, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sterlingness. The average income tax rate is 86.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Herbshirian economy, worth a remarkable 1,603 trillion euros a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Automobile Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 138,181 euros, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Footballers are doing aerobics in the sauna to build their hot weather endurance, school lockers are filled with fancy underwear, enemy navies sail within bombardment range of major coastal cities with impunity, and vats of anabolic steroids are being dumped into the ocean to make Herbshirian mussels the biggest in Europe. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Of Herbshire's national animal is the Marmot, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Of Herbshire is ranked 58,200th in the world and 579th in Europe for Most Valuable International Artwork, with 1.7 Bank.
