Ascendancy of Heria

Population1.319 billion

LeaderDavid Hellford


The Allied States of Ascendancy of Heria is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by David Hellford with a fair hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, anti-smoking policies, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 1.319 billion Herians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Eden. The average income tax rate is 40.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Herian economy, worth 137 trillion Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Trout Farming, and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 103,891 Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Politicians "baring all" for the camera isn't always a figure of speech, political candidates who don't release their birth certificates are presumed to have been born in Maxtopia, drug deals return to the streets as legions of undercover officers stalk the dark web, and the military recognizes no difference between male and female soldiers. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Ascendancy of Heria's national animal is the Panther, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Ascendancy of Heria is ranked 188,977th in the world and 137th in New Western Empire for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 1.75 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
