The Republic of Heken is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by TR with an even hand, and remarkable for its rampant corporate plagiarism, free-roaming dinosaurs, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 4.178 billion Hekenians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Theodoreville. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 24.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Hekenian economy, worth a remarkable 1,053 trillion שחלs a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an amazing 252,238 שחלs, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,026,860 per year while the poor average 41,133, a ratio of 25.0 to 1.

Grade school teachers mark homework with red "CITATION NEEDED" stamps, excessive wheelchair ramps on government buildings have been compared to theme park attractions, protesters are up in arms over new nuclear power stations, and it's been a banner year for local vexillology. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Heken's national animal is the Agricultural Landbeast, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is None.

Heken is ranked 2,329th in the world and 141st in The North Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 96.35 on the Human Development Index.
