The Empire of Hermela is a massive, socially progressive nation, renowned for its state-planned economy and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.086 billion Hermelans enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Healthcare, and Education. The average income tax rate is 29.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Hermelan economy, worth 42.1 trillion Paws 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 major contributions from Tourism, Cheese Exports, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is 38,751 Paws, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Same-sex marriages are increasingly common, arbitrary election rules are considered sacrosanct, 1% of global paper production is bound for the National Archive, and Leader has just been declared ruler of Hermela in an international press conference. Crime is totally unknown. Hermela's national animal is the Red Panda, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Hermela is ranked 201,387th in the world and 6,487th in the South Pacific for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 1.59 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
