The Republic of Herbert Island is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Herbert Winstanley with an even hand, and renowned for its pith helmet sales, smutty television, and parental licensing program. The compassionate, democratic population of 4.449 billion Herbert Islandians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Moribund. The average income tax rate is 82.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Herbert Islandian economy, worth 621 trillion Gummibearshums a year, is 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 139,792 Gummibearshums, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The tenet of free speech is held dear, newly synthesized elements' half-lives are a million times shorter than the time it takes to say their names, producers insist that movie stars wear crash helmets in every scene, and the sound of wooden legs echo throughout Herbert Island after the recent introduction of the Foot Tax. 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 8,339th in the world and 271st in the South Pacific for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 11,723.8 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
