Overview Factbook Dispatches People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Empire of Hileville is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Emperor Dennrick Ravenclaw with an iron fist, and notable for its complete lack of prisons, zero percent divorce rate, and unlimited-speed roads. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 11.774 billion Hilevilleans are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government is dominated by the Department of Defense, with Education and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Spirituality receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nanlandia. The average income tax rate is 58.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Hilevillean economy, worth a remarkable 1,774 trillion Hiles a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Automobile Manufacturing, and Information Technology. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 150,691 Hiles, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

The police crack down on tax evaders without mercy, artists are pillars of society, a government program is underway to revitalize Hileville's beaches, and Emperor Dennrick Ravenclaw's mistress is the belle at many state balls. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. 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 18,205th in the world and 277th in Balder for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with zero Valid Endorsements.
