The Holy Thiefdom of Hrotsijka is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Maxim Gromyko with an iron fist, and renowned for its enslaved workforce, otherworldly petting zoo, and prohibition of alcohol. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 36.449 billion Hrotsijkans are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Education and Healthcare are also considered important. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bryxoi. The average income tax rate is 97.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Hrotsijkan economy, worth a remarkable 7,271 trillion Aijks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, fairly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Beef-Based Agriculture. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 199,501 Aijks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Maxim Gromyko's opponents have adopted dogs to chase away the mailman, the examiners who examine examiners are being examined by examiners, convicted crypto-miners are sent to the salt mines, and pareidolic SETI scientists swear there's a message from aliens hidden within pi. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable 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 26,627th in the world and 6th in Gatesville Inc for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 302,645 Standard Monetary Units.
