Location: Testregionia

Regional Influence: Squire


The Armed Republic of Herete is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by REDACTED with a fair hand, and remarkable for its deadly medical pandemics, infamous sell-swords, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 6.824 billion Hereteans live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The minute, liberal, pro-business, outspoken government, or what there is of one, prioritizes Industry, with Administration also on the agenda, while Law & Order and Spirituality are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of REDACTED. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient heretean economy, worth a remarkable 1,040 trillion Units a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Soda Sales. Average income is an impressive 152,474 Units, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 917,317 per year while the poor average 11,429, a ratio of 80.3 to 1.

The Finance Ministry posts hourly updates on where taxpayer money is spent, clandestine emigration to countries with labor laws is all the rage, opening a bad email attachment can be a major felony, and nature magazines featuring stick insects on their covers are sometimes mistaken for fashion magazines. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Herete's national animal is the Tardigrade, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is REDACTED.

Herete is ranked 16,705th in the world and 4th in Testregionia for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 293.29 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
