The Mostly Harmless Nation of Hicdarr is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Fearless Leader with a fair hand, and remarkable for its hatred of cheese. The compassionate, intelligent population of 7.107 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.
'The Anti-Government Hour' is a popular programme on many of Hicdarr's radio stations, surveillance cameras are banned, political parties are banned from advertising and receiving private donations, and birth rates have hit an all-time low. 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 12th in Hippy Haven and 12,619th in the world for Lowest Unemployment Rates, scoring 209 on the Workforce Participation Versus Theoretical Maximum Metric.
