The Military Dictatorship of Higsantium is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, ruled by Emperor Higs with an iron fist, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 17.064 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."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Welfare receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Higsantium City. The average income tax rate is 96.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Higsantiumian economy, worth a remarkable 5,656 trillion holy hand grenades a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 331,493 holy hand grenades, with the richest citizens earning 6.5 times as much as the poorest.

The country has unplugged its internet connection to prevent subversive content, birds and children's kites are regularly brought down by anti-aircraft fire, the government extracts trade concessions from poor nations in exchange for humanitarian aid, and frequent fliers are obliged to submit to invasive security procedures by government security. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Higsantium's national animal is the vorpal bunny, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is The Cult of Higs.

Higsantium is ranked 156th in Canada and 105,830th in the world for Most Beautiful Environments, with -201.75 Pounds of Wildlife less Pounds of Concrete per square mile.
