Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Military Dictatorship of Higsantium is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Emperor Higs with an iron fist, and renowned for its enslaved workforce, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 17.975 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 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 97.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Higsantiumian economy, worth a remarkable 5,932 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 330,067 holy hand grenades, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.1 times as much as the poorest.

An increasingly villainous series of sports coaches are demanding the national mascot's true identity, anyone dissenting from the state ideology is declared "mentally ill" and whisked away in a straitjacket, children's toy tractors have been seized as state property, and pharmacies close down as medicinal drugs are sold freely by the government. 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 4th in Canada and 770th in the world for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 10 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
