The Sexy Funland of Hetairaea is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by prostitutes with a fair hand, and remarkable for its rum-swilling pirates, keen interest in outer space, and complete lack of prisons. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 873 million Hetairaeans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Welfare, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Superbrothel of Shangri-La. The average income tax rate is 59.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Hetairaean economy, worth 119 trillion Nudes 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 136,785 Nudes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Trust-fund babies line up for places in community college, business owners return from long vacations to find their factories have been turned into homeless shelters, tourists need only sign on the dotted line to become citizens, and the new iVote app allows representatives to vote on legislation by launching ill-tempered birds and matching candies. Crime is totally unknown. Hetairaea's national animal is the Succubus, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Hetairaea is ranked 6,393rd in the world and 22nd in The Free Nations Region for Most Influential, scoring 6,560 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
