The Empire of Hoytmus is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by William Hoyt with a fair hand, and remarkable for its frequent executions, punitive income tax rates, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 4.493 billion Hoytmusians are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.
The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Williamsburg. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 72.8%.
The powerhouse Hoytmusian economy, worth 298 trillion Dollars a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Average income is 66,471 Dollars, with the richest citizens earning 7.8 times as much as the poorest.
Commercial jingles have been ham-handedly forced into world renowned symphonies, airship use has soared while property values beneath their routes have plummeted, citizens are regularly arrested in queues for 'loitering', and Hoytmus Barrier Island residents anxiously await their 'Bridge to Somewhere'. 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.
