Overview Factbook People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Holy Thiefdom of Hrotsijka is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Maxim Gromyko with an iron fist, and remarkable for its parental licensing program, compulsory military service, and rampant corporate plagiarism. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 19.62 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 2,391 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 170th in Gatesville Inc and 134,420th in the world for Fattest Citizens, scoring -243.92 on the Transpolysaturated Intake Scale.
