The Emirate of Hjortheim is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Claude von Riegan with a fair hand, and remarkable for its daily referendums, enforced nudity, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 767 million Hjorts 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, Welfare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Shikashi. The average income tax rate is 81.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Hjortheimian economy, worth 82.5 trillion gevirs a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Trout Farming, Tourism, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 107,532 gevirs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation locks people up and tells them they're mad for compassion's sake, the government's economic policy can be summed up as "Abort, Retry, Fail?", laughter while watching foreign diplomats disrobe tends to make diplomatic talks counterproductive, and Claude von Riegan has more friends than ever before. Crime is totally unknown. Hjortheim's national animal is the deer, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Hjortheim is ranked 20,384th in the world and 601st in the South Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 74.92 on the Human Development Index.
