The Why Hello There of Hesterin is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Queen Zara II with a fair hand, and remarkable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, public floggings, and frequent executions. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.298 billion Hesterinians 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 large government prioritizes Education, with Administration, Industry, and Environment also on the agenda, while Spirituality receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of City of Gerard Way. The average income tax rate is 65.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Hesterinian economy, worth 119 trillion olgrarehs a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Cheese Exports, Tourism, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 92,139 olgrarehs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

The nation's laws on image rights are amongst the strictest in the world, the government has officially clarified that "wee on your hands to save time" does not count as proper hygiene, soldiers' positions are given away by the glint of their bayonets, and old folks reminisce about the last time someone was acquitted of a crime. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Hesterin's national animal is the squid, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is ChrIslam.

Hesterin is ranked 24,868th in the world and 1,459th in The North Pacific for Least Corrupt Governments, with 94.08 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
