The Empire of Hileville is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Emperor Dennrick Hile with an even hand, and notable for its punitive income tax rates, frequent executions, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 8.009 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.
The large, corrupt government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Industry, Law & Order, and Education also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Welfare aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nanlandia. The average income tax rate is 73.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Hilevillean economy, worth 901 trillion Hiles a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Automobile Manufacturing, and Soda Sales. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 112,577 Hiles, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.
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 a well-funded 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, and its national religion is the Cult of the Lions.
