The Holy and Unified Dominion of The Hexagon Industries is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by The Hexagon Overseer with an iron fist, and notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, ritual sacrifices, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 8.23 billion Illia are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Paradigm. The average income tax rate is 90.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Illian economy, worth a remarkable 1,405 trillion Hexagon Seraphs 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 an enormous, deeply entrenched, quite specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Woodchip Exports, and Uranium Mining. 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 an impressive 170,748 Hexagon Seraphs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

The nation's new foreign policy of 'very disproportionate retribution' has its neighbors on edge, decreased demand for toilets is saving the prison service a lot of money, the nation's orphanages and maternity wards have been nicknamed 'the Killbot Factories', and Big Brother is still watching even when your big brother is dead. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Hexagon Industries's national animal is the Proletariat, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is The Overseer's Vision.

The Hexagon Industries is ranked 25,006th in the world and 2nd in The Imperial Consortium for Most Developed, scoring 78.69 on the Human Development Index.
