The Republic of Hendricksons is a massive, efficient nation, remarkable for its frequent executions, public floggings, and ritual sacrifices. The hard-nosed, devout population of 3.181 billion Hendricksonsians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 69.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Hendricksonsian economy, worth 242 trillion Becks a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Woodchip Exports, Book Publishing, and Furniture Restoration. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 76,098 Becks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Only fully-fledged members of MENSA are allowed to vote, terrorist videos start by thanking their sponsors, there's a hole in the heart of every Hendricksonsian city, and it is typical to be greeted by a string of curse words in Hendricksonsian restaurants. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Hendricksons's national animal is the Panda, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Hendricksons is ranked 20,112th in the world and 33rd in Hendricksons for Largest Black Market, with 21.1 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
