Hiatsu Himaru

Population726 million

CapitalHiatsu Himaru


The Empire of Hiatsu Himaru is a huge, safe nation, renowned for its state-planned economy, compulsory military service, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed population of 726 million Hiatsu Himaruans are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The medium-sized, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hiatsu Himaru. The average income tax rate is 36.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped Hiatsu Himaruan economy, worth 32.0 trillion Himas 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 slick, highly efficient, fairly diversified black market in Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Woodchip Exports. 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 44,137 Himas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Mr Happy's Funland has just been named Hiatsu Himaru's new capital, the bonfire of the old paper records can be seen for miles around Hiatsu Himaru, voting for pro-Bigtopian candidates is voluntary, and arbitrary election rules are considered sacrosanct. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Hiatsu Himaru's national animal is the Gatin, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Hiatsu Himaru is ranked 1,559th in the world and 916th in The North Pacific for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with 134 valid endorsements.
