The Military Dictatorship of Higsantium is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, ruled by Emperor Higs with an iron fist, and renowned for its unlimited-speed roads. Its hard-nosed, cynical population of 15.411 billion 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 government stops and the rest of society begins, but it is mainly concerned with Defence, although Law & Order and Commerce are on the agenda. 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 extracts trade concessions from poor nations in exchange for humanitarian aid, Higsantium is increasingly belligerent on the international stage, record sales of 'child-whacking sticks' have been reported, and the government blames all suspicious phenomena on flying saucers. 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.
