The Meritocracy of Hesrova is a massive, safe nation, remarkable for its parental licensing program, daily referendums, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The compassionate, democratic population of 3.159 billion Hesrovans love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Haupstad. The average income tax rate is 94.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Hesrovan economy, worth 498 trillion Sermines a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 157,702 Sermines, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Haupstad's main city thoroughfare has been blocked by a row of leyland cypresses that mysteriously appeared overnight, people faint regularly as they get stuck with compulsory vaccinations, Leader is considering changing the Hesrovan flag to one with more glitter, and immersive video game experiences are interrupted by incessant disclaimer pop-ups. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Hesrova's national animal is the Finch, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Hesrova is ranked 202,144th in the world and 7,551st in the South Pacific for Largest Agricultural Sector, scoring -8.12 on the Mu-Bah-Daggs Productivity Index.
