The People's Jamahiriya of Herzliyya is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by the Herzliyyan People's Vanguard with a fair hand, and renowned for its strictly enforced bedtime, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, humorless population of 32.31 billion Herzliyyans 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 enormous government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Verda Urbo. The average income tax rate is 99.0%.

The powerhouse Herzliyyan economy, worth a remarkable 5,470 trillion herzls a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Tourism, and Information Technology. Average income is an impressive 169,300 herzls, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation's universities are often mistaken for foreign embassies, every workday begins with group therapy, incarcerated crime lords manage their empires from massage tables, and cosmopolitan citizens ask what their countries can do for them. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Herzliyya's national animal is the giraffe, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Herzliyya is ranked 203,747th in the world and 9,741st in The North Pacific for Largest Mining Sector, scoring -21.49 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
