The Kingdom of Hebrew is a huge, cultured nation, ruled by King Clawthorne with a fair hand, and remarkable for its compulsory vegetarianism, smutty television, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 971 million Hebrewians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The large, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Ness Tsyona. The average income tax rate is 72.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Hebrewian economy, worth 109 trillion Euros a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 112,988 Euros, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

The nation is ravaged by daily union strikes, AI citizens are criticized for being robotic, every day has been a surprise since weather reporters turned to consulting ancient totems for their seven-day forecasts, and Catherine Gratwick's campaign support is considered seminal. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Hebrew's national animal is the Hebrew gazelle, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Hebrew is ranked 33,642nd in the world and 1,461st in The North Pacific for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 4,837.37 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
