The People's Jamahiriya of Herzliyya is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by the Herzliyyan People's Vanguard with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, sprawling nuclear power plants, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic, humorless population of 34.14 billion Herzliyyans enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Verda Urbo. The average income tax rate is 99.2%.

The all-consuming Herzliyyan economy, worth a remarkable 5,715 trillion herzls a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 167,414 herzls, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation's universities are often mistaken for foreign embassies, every workday begins with group therapy, incarcerated crime lords manage their empires from massage tables, and cosmopolitan citizens ask what their countries can do for them. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Herzliyya's national animal is the giraffe, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Herzliyya is ranked 240,368th in the world and 9,724th in The North Pacific for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring -19.84 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
