Overview Policies People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Holy Empire of The Hemenopia is a huge, efficient nation, renowned for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, frequent executions, and infamous sell-swords. The hard-working population of 664 million Hemenopians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Law & Order, and Education. The average income tax rate is 48.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Hemenopian economy, worth 53.2 trillion pesos a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, fairly diversified black market in Uranium Mining, Arms Manufacturing, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Soda Sales. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 80,156 pesos, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The tomato-covered corpses that decorate the nation's cities are a favourite amongst morbid tourists, all citizens are solely referenced by their allocated identity number, chewing tree bark proves to have limited value during childbirth, and fine dining is just too fine for most of the populace. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a 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 149,456th in the world and 13th in The Great Universe for Nudest, with 64 Cheeks Per Square Mile.
