The Military Dictatorship of Higsantium is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, ruled by Emperor Higs with an iron fist, and notable for its anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 16.836 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.

Employers may fire workers without giving any reason, citizens are regularly arrested in queues for 'loitering', every citizen must submit to DNA testing to be eliminated from police inquiries, and citizens live in superstitious fear of the mysterious glowing clouds that float over Higsantium. 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 2nd in Canada and 742nd in the world for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring 15 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
