The Heroism of The Hero is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by the Hero with an even hand, and remarkable for its ban on automobiles, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, devout population of 1.869 billion Heroans are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The enormous, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Administration, and Spirituality. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Admin-1. The average income tax rate is 66.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Heroan economy, worth 60.1 trillion Feedoms a year, is highly specialized and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Door-to-door Insurance Sales, Information Technology, and Cheese Exports. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 32,143 Feedoms, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Conversion therapy coupons are a popular present for coming of age ceremonies, photos of picturesque coastal buildings are set against a backdrop of smokestacks and ship hulls, diplomatic missions typically end with a flurry of childish insults, accusations and phlegm, and the wearing and manufacture of fur apparel is banned. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. The Hero's national animal is the Unicorn, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

The Hero is ranked 242,211th in the world and 4,791st in Artificial Solar System for Smartest Citizens, with 2.65 quips per hour.
