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 parental licensing program, rampant corporate plagiarism, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 20.247 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 96.9%.

The powerhouse Hrotsijkan economy, worth a remarkable 2,467 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 121,873 Aijks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.0 times as much as the poorest.

Mantis shrimp studies is academia's fastest growing field, foreign 'investors' have been taking a great interest in the new secret shuttle, Maxim Gromyko's mistress is the belle at many state balls, and the armed forces are locked in an expensive and bloody war abroad to stamp out possible terrorists. 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 42nd in Gatesville Inc and 23,423rd in the world for Lowest Unemployment Rates, scoring 149 on the Workforce Participation Versus Theoretical Maximum Metric.
