The Military Dictatorship of Higsantium is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Emperor Higs with an iron fist, and notable for its suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 16.128 billion Higsantiumians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt, moralistic government stops and the rest of society begins, but it concentrates mainly on Defence, although Law & Order and Commerce are secondary priorities. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Higsantium City. The average income tax rate is 100%. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry.

Pro-democracy protesters are shot on sight by state police, foreign 'investors' have been taking a great interest in the new secret shuttle, organ donation is compulsory, and believers must practice religion behind church doors lest the government smite them with a mighty fine. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. Higsantium's national animal is the vorpal bunny, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, its national religion is The Cult of Higs, and its currency is the holy hand grenade.

Higsantium is ranked 139th in Canada and 104,135th in the world for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with -192 Net Tourists per hour.
