“Let there be Freedom!”

Regional Influence: Shoeshiner
The Republic of Herrethia is a massive, cultured nation, renowned for its anti-smoking policies, keen interest in outer space, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, hard-working population of 4.171 billion Herrethians 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 medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Helenburgh. The average income tax rate is 66.8%.
The powerhouse Herrethian economy, worth 565 trillion Valens a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 135,531 Valens, with the richest citizens earning 5.2 times as much as the poorest.
Herrethia's navy has been named the scourge of the seven thousand seas, children are terrified that the 'flying police monster' will come to take them away in the night, human tissue is grown in vats as a delicacy as well as for transplants, and televangelists flaunt their expensive cars when they attend charity events. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Herrethia's national animal is the Water Buffalo, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
