Herbert Island

Population1.452 billion

LeaderHerbert Winstanley


The Republic of Herbert Island is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Herbert Winstanley with an even hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, anti-smoking policies, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.452 billion Herbert Islandians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized government prioritizes Education, with Industry, Administration, and Environment also on the agenda, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Moribund. The average income tax rate is 70.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Herbert Islandian economy, worth 203 trillion Gummibearshums a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 140,093 Gummibearshums, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Mantis shrimp studies is academia's fastest-growing field, the government loves seeing the little people fight, Herbert Winstanley's media campaigns take a hiatus around exam week, and factories are regularly demolished to make way for low-cost housing areas. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Herbert Island's national animal is the Aardvark, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Herbert Island is ranked 1,401st in the world and 210th in the South Pacific for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with 111 Valid Endorsements.
