The Man who goes by the name of Hiriaurtung Arororugul is a gargantuan, devout nation, ruled by General Hiriaurtung Arororugul with an iron fist, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 12.48 billion Hiriaurtung Arororugulians are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The government -- a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, corrupt, pro-business morass -- concentrates mainly on Defence, although Law & Order and Commerce are on the agenda. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 22%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, followed by Information Technology and Uranium Mining.

An increasing percentage of the population's youth have homosexual parents, politicians are often seen with soldiers pointing guns at their heads, cars speed down national highways while drivers sleep at the wheel, and strange looking men with big red noses are found hiding behind bushes and inside dustbins. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is well under control, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. Hiriaurtung Arororugul's national animal is the horse he rode in on, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, its national religion is Tengriism, and its currency is the one in his wallet.

Hiriaurtung Arororugul is ranked 49th in Antarctic Oasis and 110,697th in the world for Least Corrupt Governments, scoring -114 on the Inverse Mugabe Relativity Rating.
