The Military Dictatorship of Higsantium is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, ruled by Emperor Higs with an iron fist, and renowned for its complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 16.499 billion Higsantiumians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it is mainly concerned with 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.

Red Cross demand for body bags is rising while sutures go unused, the government is well known for declaring war on other countries for suspected slights, senior citizens can usually be found doing heavy manual labour, and the world outside is only known of in folklore. 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 178th in Canada and 112,549th in the world for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -29 on the Hayek Index.
