The Democratic Republic of Hethantisters is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Supreme Cloud Chaser with an even hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, ubiquitous missile silos, and daily referendums. The compassionate, cheerful population of 8.705 billion Hethanists 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 tiny government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hethantisters City. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Hethantistersian economy, worth a remarkable 2,976 trillion mls of e-liquid a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 341,896 mls of e-liquid, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.1 times as much as the poorest.

Supreme Cloud Chaser's new political program is often mockingly called 'Capitalism with a Bigtopian face', t-shirts displaying a photo of Supreme Cloud Chaser performing the Full-Monty are selling out, wounded veterans can only get prosthetics if they agree to become walking billboards for the arms industry, and the law is more interested in punishing crime than preventing it. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Hethantisters's national animal is the panther, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Hethantisters is ranked 140,931st in the world and 3,918th in the Rejected Realms for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 30.82 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
