The Non-Existent Nation of Socialist Heronia is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Premier Ilitra Jasfenix with a fair hand, and remarkable for its compulsory military service, ubiquitous missile silos, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 9.23 billion commie herons hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Terenci. The average income tax rate is 81.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Socialist Heronian economy, worth a remarkable 1,083 trillion blocs 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 dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 117,430 blocs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Money can't buy love but mercy is entirely negotiable, more sidewalk is dedicated to animals than people, the Museum of Blackacrean War Crimes is located on "Blackacre Did Nothing Wrong Avenue", and the nation's spies are always on break time. Crime is totally unknown. Socialist Heronia's national animal is the steel-grey heron, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Socialist Heronia is ranked 9,167th in the world and 143rd in The Communist Bloc for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 413.53 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
