The Republic of Heken is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by TR with an even hand, and renowned for its rampant corporate plagiarism, compulsory military service, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 4.531 billion Hekenians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Theodoreville. The average income tax rate is 34.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Hekenian economy, worth a remarkable 1,148 trillion שחלs a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an amazing 253,469 שחלs, with the richest citizens earning 5.3 times as much as the poorest.

Town nameplates frequently raise giggles from passing tourists, construction workers evacuate work sites after finding sharp rocks on the ground, the government subsidizes everything from particle physics to fabric softeners, and the government prefers to kill off its enemies by peaceful means. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Heken's national animal is the Agricultural Landbeast, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is None.

Heken is ranked 37,972nd in the world and 1,903rd in The North Pacific for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring 2,723.8 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
