The Military Dictatorship of Higsantium is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Emperor Higs with an iron fist, and notable for its avant-garde cinema, strictly enforced bedtime, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 20.726 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 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 82.8%.
The frighteningly efficient Higsantiumian economy, worth an astonishing 10,074 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 486,096 holy hand grenades, with the richest citizens earning 5.1 times as much as the poorest.
Conspiracy theorists allege Higsantium City's new subway map resembles Satanic symbols, the nation's leading climatologists are investigating animal flatulence in efforts to reduce methane emissions, the nation's government buildings are remarkable for being ugly concrete boxes, and criminals and college students are taking an interest in the government's new weed-killing program. 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.
