The Republic of Hendricksons is a massive, orderly nation, renowned for its ritual sacrifices, parental licensing program, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 2.272 billion Hendricksonsians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The enormous, corrupt, moralistic government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 68.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Hendricksonsian economy, worth 166 trillion Becks a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Woodchip Exports, Book Publishing, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 73,411 Becks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Masterpieces by male artists are on display in the dumpsters behind the gallery, aging citizens are celebrating the end of the 'Early Bird War', the government makes bereaved siblings into bereaved orphans, and town welcome signs list corporate sponsors. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Hendricksons's national animal is the Panda, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Hendricksons is ranked 104,393rd in the world and 23rd in Hendricksons for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring 695.31 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
