The Military Dictatorship of Higsantium is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Emperor Higs with an iron fist, and renowned for its anti-smoking policies, unlimited-speed roads, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 17.6 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 aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Higsantium City. The average income tax rate is 97.0%.
The frighteningly efficient Higsantiumian economy, worth a remarkable 5,795 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 329,282 holy hand grenades, with the richest citizens earning 6.5 times as much as the poorest.
Criminals are executed and their property seized, poets and writers are regularly rounded up and shot for entertainment, homeowners are evicted to make way for new runways, and politicians accepting drinks in bars are executed for taking bribes. 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.
