The Sexy Funland of Hetairaea is a massive, genial nation, ruled by prostitutes with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, rampant corporate plagiarism, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 2.553 billion 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, corrupt, 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 66.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Hetairaean economy, worth 461 trillion Nudes a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 180,853 Nudes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.2 times as much as the poorest.

It's always rabbit season, feuilletons can only be deciphered with a Galliennais dictionary, muggers are complimented on their enterprising spirit, and airplanes have giant grilles on their noses to knock drones out of their path. Crime is relatively low. Hetairaea's national animal is the Succubus, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is communal loving.

Hetairaea is ranked 8,920th in the world and 18th in The Free Nations Region for Longest Average Lifespans, with 91.44 Years.
