The United Federation of Hermes Express 123 is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Lord-King Hermes with an iron fist, and renowned for its parental licensing program, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, cynical population of 3.679 billion Hermes Expressians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Administration, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Brisbane. The average income tax rate is 96.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Hermes Expressian economy, worth 755 trillion United credits a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 205,276 United credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Citizens are permitted to carry concealed handguns, the government has officially clarified that "wee on your hands to save time" does not count as proper hygiene, Hermes Express 123 has one of the largest offshore wind farms in the world, and no personal detail is too tiny for the suede-denim census police. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Hermes Express 123's national animal is the Ysalamir, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Pastafarianism.

Hermes Express 123 is ranked 5,572nd in the world and 7th in Gypsy Lands for Best Weather, with 292 Meters Of Sunlight.
