The Military Dictatorship of Higsantium is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, ruled by Emperor Higs with an iron fist, and remarkable for its compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 16.014 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.

The government keeps introducing new foreign species to combat the previous ones it has introduced, suppression of pro-democracy protests is a daily occurrence, frequent fliers are obliged to submit to invasive security procedures by government security, and politicians are often seen with soldiers pointing guns at their heads. 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 161st in Canada and 97,272nd in the world for Most Politically Free, scoring 12 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
