The Holy Empire of The Hemenopia is a massive, efficient nation, renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, frequent executions, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 1.939 billion Hemenopians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Law & Order, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 55.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Hemenopian economy, worth 168 trillion pesos a year, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Automobile Manufacturing, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is 87,127 pesos, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Old warplanes and tanks that break down can't be repaired since no one makes the parts anymore, basket-weaving is the nation's latest fad, charities reserve the right to not help those who go against religious teachings, and public nudity is compulsory. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Hemenopia's national animal is the falcon, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

The Hemenopia is ranked 12,117th in the world and 2nd in The Great Universe for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring 5,669.48 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
