The Federal Republic of Hercinia is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Marcus with an even hand, and notable for its frequent executions, daily referendums, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 1.108 billion Hercinians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, moralistic government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Caledonia. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 41.4%.

The powerhouse Hercinian economy, worth 101 trillion silvers a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Retail. Average income is 91,270 silvers, with the richest citizens earning 5.7 times as much as the poorest.

Foreign casinos have trouble paying fans who bet on the Caledonia Foxes' triumph against long odds, more sidewalk is dedicated to animals than people, homeowners on prime real estate have been seen dodging giant bulldozers with cartoon characters painted on them, and mining safety laws are often more expensive than what's being mined. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Hercinia's national animal is the fox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Hercinia is ranked 114,587th in the world and 3,825th in Balder for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring 891.58 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
