The Hiadentship of Herrebrugh

Population19.126 billion


The Homage to the Memory of The Hiadentship of Herrebrugh is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its complete lack of prisons, state-planned economy, and stringent health and safety legislation. The democratic population of 19.126 billion Herrebrughians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, socially-minded, outspoken government prioritizes Welfare, with Education and Healthcare also on the agenda. The average income tax rate is 72.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but stagnant Hiadentship of Herrebrughian economy, worth 261 trillion Huldes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Woodchip Exports, Soda Sales, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Average income is 13,680 Huldes, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Hiadentship of Herrebrugh's national animal is the scorpion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

The Hiadentship of Herrebrugh is ranked 155,674th in the world and 1st in Brotherhood of Nod for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 57.45 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
