The Most Serene Republic of Herblestan is a huge, efficient nation, remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, compulsory military service, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 471 million Herblestanians 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, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Klubnikagrad. The average income tax rate is 24.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Herblestanian economy, worth 47.2 trillion dodgers a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 100,269 dodgers, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

Listless juries are assembled for the simplest of court cases, t-shirts displaying a photo of Leader performing the Full-Monty are selling out, crossword puzzles have been co-opted as a symbol of racial discrimination, and the cancellation of "The Real Vixens of Klubnikagrad" has been described as a real blow for entertainment. Crime, especially youth-related, is almost non-existent. Herblestan's national animal is the Herble, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Herblestan is ranked 18,727th in the world and 775th in The North Pacific for Most Politically Apathetic Citizens, with 55.36 Whatever.
