The Ood Empire of Hidden is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by The Great Immortal with an even hand, and renowned for its anti-smoking policies. Its hard-nosed, intelligent population of 4.344 billion have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it concentrates mainly on Education, although the Environment and Defence are secondary priorities. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Citadel. The average income tax rate is 90%, and even higher for the wealthy. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Information Technology industry.

Organ donation rates are among the lowest in the region, the latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller, anti-government web sites are springing up, and Hidden's children are widely acknowledged as the most foul-mouthed in the region. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Hidden's national animal is the Bear, which is also the nation's favorite main course, its national religion is Immortalitum, and its currency is the Harkins.

Hidden is ranked 10th in Firefly and 81,227th in the world for Most Authoritarian, with 0.177 Stalins.
