The Kingdom of The Heradorian Commonwealth is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Paige Mongan with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, sprawling nuclear power plants, and pith helmet sales. The compassionate, democratic population of 3.546 billion Heradorians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 74.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Heradorian Commonwealthian economy, worth 230 trillion Heradorian Marks a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Arms Manufacturing, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 65,138 Heradorian Marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Power stations shutting down at night has made bedtime reading tricky, party affiliation is just as irrelevant as campaign promises, Paige Mongan's new door-knocking campaign has the sweet taste of success, and children are brainwashed at a young age to accept "love and peace!" as a way of life. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Heradorian Commonwealth's national animal is the Wolfhound, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

The Heradorian Commonwealth is ranked 17,688th in the world and 2nd in CCC for Most Inclusive, scoring 154.25 on the Mandela-Wollstonecraft Non-Discrimination Index.
