Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Military Dictatorship of Higsantium is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Emperor Higs with an iron fist, and remarkable for its public floggings, anti-smoking policies, and parental licensing program. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 17.431 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."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic 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 97.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Higsantiumian economy, worth a remarkable 5,732 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 reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 328,873 holy hand grenades, with the richest citizens earning 6.5 times as much as the poorest.

Mantis shrimp studies is academia's fastest growing field, immigrants are asked to leave their cultural traditions and pride at the border, record sales of 'child-whacking sticks' have been reported, and the armed forces are locked in an expensive and bloody war abroad to stamp out possible terrorists. 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 397th in the world for Largest Information Technology Sector, scoring 20 on the Fann-Boi Productivity Index.
