Overview Factbook People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Holy Thiefdom of Hrotsijka is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Maxim Gromyko with an iron fist, and notable for its anti-smoking policies, parental licensing program, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 19.28 billion Hrotsijkans are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The enormous, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bryxoi. The average income tax rate is 96.6%.

The powerhouse Hrotsijkan economy, worth a remarkable 2,335 trillion Aijks a year, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Uranium Mining, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is an impressive 121,143 Aijks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.1 times as much as the poorest.

Governments opposing Hrotsijka are beset by rebels, newspapers cannot report anything about politicians without their explicit consent, billions are being spent on a new island airport, and the populace lives in fear of painful execution for minor offences. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Hrotsijka's national animal is the Hrotsijkan Ram, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Gromykoism.

Hrotsijka is ranked 123rd in Gatesville Inc and 136,403rd in the world for Most Rebellious Youth, scoring -13 on the Stark-Dean Displacement Index.
