The Haar Meest Goddelijke Staten of Samantha-Higgs is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Supreme Leader Samantha Prudence Thida H with an iron fist, and notable for its zero percent divorce rate, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 9.9 billion Samantha's Minions 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 frighteningly efficient Samantha's Minion economy, worth a remarkable 3,081 trillion Samantha Higgs' Rare Privilege Credits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 311,270 Samantha Higgs' Rare Privilege Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Samantha-Higgs's national animal is the The Sacred Icons of Samantha - Kitten, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is There Is No God But Only Samantha Higgs.

Samantha-Higgs is ranked 4,619th in the world and 9th in Psychotic Dictatorships for Highest Economic Output, with 3,081 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
