The Republic of Herbert Island is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Herbert Winstanley with a fair hand, and notable for its digital currency, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 3.522 billion Herbert Islandians 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 large government prioritizes Education, with Administration, Industry, and Environment also on the agenda, while Spirituality receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Moribund. The average income tax rate is 76.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Herbert Islandian economy, worth 479 trillion Gummibearshums a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 136,084 Gummibearshums, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Everyone hates people who encourage hate, a common response to government PSAs is "well, DUH, obviously", the government keeps its thumb on the scales of justice, and the family of Herbert Winstanley bite their thumbs at paparazzi intrusions. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Herbert Island's national animal is the Aardvark, which is also the nation's favorite main course.
