OverviewPoliciesPeopleGovernmentEconomyRankTrendCards

The Republic of Herbert Island is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Herbert Winstanley with a fair hand, and notable for its anti-smoking policies, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 4.865 billion Herbert Islandians 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 Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Moribund. The average income tax rate is 88.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Herbert Islandian economy, worth 712 trillion Gummibearshums a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 146,382 Gummibearshums, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Drug deals return to the streets as legions of undercover officers stalk the dark web, farting etiquette is taught in schools, the nation has welcomed its expats back with open arms, and the nation is wading into dangerous waters. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Herbert Island's national animal is the Aardvark, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Herbert Island is ranked 147,722nd in the world and 4,945th in the South Pacific for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring 308.55 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
