OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Mostly Harmless Nation of Hicdarr is a colossal, economically powerful nation, ruled by Fearless Leader with a fair hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, intelligent population of 7.255 billion Hicdarrians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, liberal government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Social Welfare, and Social Equality. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Todry Dam. The average income tax rate is 87%, and even higher for the wealthy. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Book Publishing industry.

Prime real estate is devoted to wind farms and solar energy generators, prison visits increase substantially during election years, political parties are banned from advertising and receiving private donations, and extreme political groups are outlawed. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is a serious problem, and the police force struggles against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Hicdarr's national animal is the Bugblatter beast, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its currency is the bitcoin.

Hicdarr is ranked 13th in Hippy Haven and 4,798th in the world for Smartest Citizens, scoring 28 on the Average Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
