The Mostly Harmless Nation of Hicdarr is a colossal, economically powerful nation, ruled by Fearless Leader with a fair hand, and notable for its punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, intelligent population of 6.98 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 86%, and even higher for the wealthy. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Book Publishing industry.

Graffiti graces every city's streets, an increasing percentage of the population's youth have homosexual parents, violently opinionated speakers can be heard preaching their hateful views on every street corner, and religious organizations are being forced to leave the country or pay income taxes like everybody else. 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 22nd in Hippy Haven and 6,342nd in the world for Best Weather, with 145 Metres of Sunlight Above Expected.
