King HEM

Population29.132 billion

LeaderHEM Tiberius


The Europeian grandfather state of King HEM is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by HEM Tiberius with an even hand, and renowned for its zero percent divorce rate, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and smutty television. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 29.132 billion Europeians 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 prioritizes Education, although Welfare, Environment, and Social Policy are also considered important, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Legionaires. The average income tax rate is 92.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Europeian economy, worth a remarkable 3,691 trillion euros a year, is quite specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology and Gambling. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 126,717 euros, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The tax agency is feared more than serial killers and terrorists, some electoral districts are without a representative as they are stuck with perpetual revotes, warfare increasingly resembles a video game, and unpopular cops are fired at a moment's notice by the citizens they police. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. King HEM's national animal is the fox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Christianity.

King HEM is ranked 19,879th in the world and 175th in Europeia for Highest Average Incomes, with 126,717.55 Standard Monetary Units.
