Herbert Island

Population7.105 billion

LeaderHerbert Winstanley


The Republic of Herbert Island is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Herbert Winstanley with a fair hand, and notable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, digital currency, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 7.105 billion Herbert Islandians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Moribund. The average income tax rate is 90.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Herbert Islandian economy, worth a remarkable 1,059 trillion Gummibearshums a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 149,169 Gummibearshums, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Prolonged government investigations are a common revenge tactic among spurned significant others, dog owners proudly declare that their pups can predict when the mailman will arrive, the nation's democracy attracts huddled masses yearning to breathe free, and organ donation is compulsory. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Herbert Island's national animal is the Aardvark, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Herbert Island is ranked 262,295th in the world and 12,390th in the South Pacific for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -238.64 on the Hayek Index.
