The Man who goes by the name of Hiriaurtung Arororugul is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, ruled by General Hiriaurtung Arororugul with an iron fist, and remarkable for its unlimited-speed roads. Its hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 11.178 billion 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 -- is mainly concerned with Defence, although Law & Order and Commerce are secondary priorities. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 21%. 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 25th in Gatesville Inc and 6,843rd in the world for Most Politically Apathetic Citizens, with 15 Whatever.
