The Military Dictatorship of Higsantium is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Emperor Higs with an iron fist, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies, enslaved workforce, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 18.188 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."
The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order is also considered important, while Social Policy and Welfare are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Higsantium City. The average income tax rate is 97.4%.
The frighteningly efficient Higsantiumian economy, worth a remarkable 6,008 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 common. Average income is an amazing 330,369 holy hand grenades, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.1 times as much as the poorest.
Rumours have it that a secret police is responsible for the recent spate of missing persons, suppression of pro-democracy protests is a daily occurrence, strange looking men with big red noses are found hiding behind bushes and inside dustbins, and all beauty contests have been banned. 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.
