Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Military Dictatorship of Higsantium is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Emperor Higs with an iron fist, and remarkable for its enslaved workforce, strictly enforced bedtime, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 20.167 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 relatively small, corrupt, well-organized government is effectively ruled by the Department of Defense, with Healthcare and Industry also on the agenda, 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 82.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Higsantiumian economy, worth a remarkable 9,629 trillion holy hand grenades a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 477,508 holy hand grenades, with the richest citizens earning 5.3 times as much as the poorest.

Country folk are sent to obligatory boarding schools to learn how to be civilized, the military has forsaken terrestrial warfare, mandatory spouse selection pairs elderly apparatchiki with stunningly beautiful supermodels, and Maxtopian tourists make expensive pilgrimages to Higsantium City to enjoy their national art. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. 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 21st in the world and 1st in Canada for Largest Black Market, with 9,999 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
