The Mostly Harmless Nation of Hicdarr is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Fearless Leader with a fair hand, and notable for its punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, intelligent population of 7.812 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 89%, and even higher for the wealthy. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Book Publishing industry.

Abortions are routinely performed in Hicdarr's hospitals, oil executives can be seen reluctantly cleaning oil-soaked birds, leather-clad individuals can be seen walking their slaves in public parks, and parents live in fear of governmental 'child protection' squads. 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.

Hicdarr is ranked 57th in Hippy Haven and 114,355th in the world for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring -6 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
