The Grand Duchy of Heinsbergen is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Grand Duke Heinrich VI with an even hand, and renowned for its smutty television, irreverence towards religion, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 1.824 billion Heinsbergeners 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 medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pflegerdorf am Rhein. The average income tax rate is 30.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Heinsbergenerian economy, worth 177 trillion Kupfermarks a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Arms Manufacturing. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 97,354 Kupfermarks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Parking's carefree without parking car fees, a recent "genocide prevention" campaign includes murdering children based on their DNA, the people are famous throughout the region for their perfect yellow teeth, and lumberjacks only use certified eco-friendly chainsaws. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Heinsbergen's national animal is the Alpine Swift, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Agnostic Atheism.

Heinsbergen is ranked 21,475th in the world and 369th in Europe for Most Developed, scoring 81.62 on the Human Development Index.
