The Republic of Korea of Hiram Land is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Dae Kyung-Mi with an even hand, and renowned for its complete lack of prisons, keen interest in outer space, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 6.904 billion Koreans 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 enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Seoul. The average income tax rate is 96.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Korean economy, worth a remarkable 1,163 trillion Won a year, is highly specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 168,525 Won, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Dae Kyung-Mi panders to nontraditional families, the government is spending millions on renovating the public transportation system, elections have become procedural nightmares due to voters persistently rejecting candidates, and census workers struggle to account for the rapidly increasing number of citizens to tabulate. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Hiram Land's national animal is the idk, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is None Official.

Hiram Land is ranked 206,038th in the world and 35th in Independent Nations for Largest Mining Sector, scoring -28.91 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
