Overview Factbook People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Minister of Foreign Affairs of Hileville is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Emperor Dennrick Ravenclaw with an even hand, and notable for its zero percent divorce rate, keen interest in outer space, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 9.294 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 medium-sized, corrupt government is dominated by the Department of Defense, with Education and Law & Order 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 62.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Hilevillean economy, worth 921 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 extensive. Average income is 99,158 Hiles, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Members of Parliament operate under a PAYE scheme, oil executives can be seen reluctantly cleaning oil-soaked birds, the government has cut its subsidies for all special interest groups, and citizens live in superstitious fear of the mysterious glowing clouds that float over Hileville. Crime, especially youth-related, 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.

Hileville is ranked 201st in the South Pacific and 10,654th in the world for Lowest Unemployment Rates, scoring 271 on the Workforce Participation Versus Theoretical Maximum Metric.
