The Henry Empire

Population5.068 billion

The Glorious Henryist Paradise of The Henry Empire is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by TJH with an iron fist, and remarkable for its closed borders, public floggings, and unlimited-speed roads. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 5.068 billion Henryists are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The relatively small, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Henrygrad. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 24.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Henryist economy, worth 776 trillion henrybucks a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Gambling, and Retail. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 153,258 henrybucks, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 686,583 per year while the poor average 21,179, a ratio of 32.4 to 1.

Teddy bears and pajamas have replaced briefcases and suits in The Henry Empire's offices, children's bedrooms are often decorated with posters of successful accountants, Henryist husbands are dead good at fathering kids, and failed genetic experiments wreak havoc as they roam the countryside. Crime, especially youth-related, is well under control, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Henry Empire's national animal is the rabid mongoose, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Henrinism.

The Henry Empire is ranked 9,718th in the world and 7th in The Gordo Alliance of Got Beef for Largest Retail Industry, scoring 9,840.95 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
