The Kingdom of Herconia is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by King William I De Gallaecus-Echamon with a fair hand, and notable for its zero percent divorce rate, keen interest in outer space, and anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 17.674 billion Herconians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, outspoken government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Xenopolis. The average income tax rate is 86.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Herconian economy, worth 997 trillion Sovereigns a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing. Average income is 56,443 Sovereigns, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government has declared its commitment to multilateralism, dynamite sales and concert audiences are booming, commuters often break into synchronised para-para dancing for no reason at all, and planes can be grounded for months simply because an inspector "didn't like the color". Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Herconia's national animal is the lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Herconia is ranked 19,318th in the world and 5th in The Heartland for Smartest Citizens, with 63.38 quips per hour.
