“Et ipsa scientia potestas”
|Category: Inoffensive Centrist Democracy|
Regional Influence: Minnow
The Empire of Hileville is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Emperor Dennrick Hile with an even hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 7.595 billion Hilevilleans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt government stops and the rest of society begins, but it devotes most of its attentions to Defence, with areas such as Religion & Spirituality and Social Welfare receiving almost no funds by comparison. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nanlandia. The average income tax rate is 90%, and even higher for the wealthy. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, followed by Tourism and Automobile Manufacturing.
The government extracts trade concessions from poor nations in exchange for humanitarian aid, nudity is frowned upon, students are known to arrive at school in their pyjamas, and the military invades any neighboring nation with the gall to criticize its policies. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Hileville's national animal is the Lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, its national religion is the Cult of the Lions, and its currency is the Hile.
