The Kingd' o' t' Herrebrugh Isl' of Herrebrugh is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by King Jozef III of the Herrebrugh Islands with a fair hand, and notable for its national health service, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and complete lack of prisons. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 32.532 billion Herrebrughers 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 government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, outspoken morass — juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Josephtown. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Herrebrugher economy, worth a remarkable 7,314 trillion guilders a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 224,853 guilders, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The name of the "Butcher of Bigtopia" adorns shirts across Herrebrugh, grocery stores can be audibly identified by the giggling emerging from them, vegetables are crisper thanks to CRISPR, and a few people seem to spend their whole time complaining. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Herrebrugh's national animal is the Jozevian elephant, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is the Nether-High Dutch Uniting Church.

Herrebrugh is ranked 273,794th in the world and 200th in Democratic Socialist Assembly for Fattest Citizens, with 3.86 Obesity Rate.
