The Isolated Community of -Hinamizawa- is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Rika-chama with an iron fist, and renowned for its triple-decker prams, hatred of cheese, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 8.775 billion Hinamizawans 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 large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Spirituality, Environment, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hinamizawa. The average income tax rate is 87.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but underdeveloped Hinamizawan economy, worth 424 trillion Offals a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is mostly comprised of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 48,349 Offals, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Thousands of children die every day from easily curable illnesses, the most common psychiatric diagnosis is to 'stop whining and grow up', the alarmingly racist TV show 'Bigtopians Say the Darndest Things' is a hit, and tourists from around the world come to visit the country's famous rainforests. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. -Hinamizawa-'s national animal is the Satoko, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is worship of the mighty Oyashiro-sama.

-Hinamizawa- is ranked 168,045th in the world and 54th in Anime for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring -95.17 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
