Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Empire of Hoytmus is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by William Hoyt with a fair hand, and remarkable for its frequent executions, complete lack of prisons, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 4.089 billion Hoytmusians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The enormous, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Williamsburg. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 74.7%.

The very strong Hoytmusian economy, worth 243 trillion Dollars a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Average income is 59,578 Dollars, with the richest citizens earning 7.1 times as much as the poorest.

Members of Parliament operate under a PAYE scheme, the nation has welcomed its expats back with open arms, only the rich can afford the latest medical innovations, and the 'kind of scrawny' 500 meter hurdle is a popular event. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Hoytmus's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Christianity.

Hoytmus is ranked 3,912th in Lazarus and 132,938th in the world for Most Authoritarian, with 0.015 Stalins.
