The Patriotic Republic of Hermosamente is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by President Romero with an iron fist, and renowned for its zero percent divorce rate, compulsory military service, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 3.165 billion Hermosans 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 medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of San Pedro. The average income tax rate is 92.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Hermosan economy, worth 788 trillion Hermosan Pesos a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Retail. Average income is an amazing 248,974 Hermosan Pesos, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

President Romero's told that love often manifests itself through homicidal four-lettered litanies, the government tells its citizens to 'forgive and forget', voting is compulsory, and fiscal policy hawks decry the sizable "panem et circenses" fund added to the public budget. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Hermosamente's national animal is the Bull and its national religion is Roman Catholicism.

Hermosamente is ranked 4,703rd in the world and 7th in Thalassia for Most Developed, scoring 93.97 on the Human Development Index.
