The Military Dictatorship of Higsantium is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Emperor Higs with an iron fist, and notable for its compulsory military service, avant-garde cinema, and zero percent divorce rate. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 20.547 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 receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Higsantium City. The average income tax rate is 83.5%.
The frighteningly efficient Higsantiumian economy, worth a remarkable 9,899 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 481,796 holy hand grenades, with the richest citizens earning 5.2 times as much as the poorest.
Higsantiumian athletes are close to breaking the 2 minute mile and the 16 meter long jump, people regularly disappear off the streets and all evidence of them is destroyed, political activists are routinely executed, and warfare increasingly resembles a video game. 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.
