The Mostly Harmless Nation of Hicdarr is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Fearless Leader with a fair hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, intelligent population of 7.476 billion Hicdarrians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.
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 88%, and even higher for the wealthy. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Book Publishing industry.
Citizens are encouraged to report friends, family members or co-workers who seem depressed to the government for "counselling", military funding has been stripped back, Hicdarr's educational system is the envy of many and regarded as a pinnacle of academic achievement, and dog breeding has been banned in accordance with recent animal experimentation laws. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is a 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.
