The United Tsardom of Hibernian-Caledonia is a huge, efficient nation, notable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, complete lack of prisons, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 676 million Russians 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 large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Administration, Law & Order, and Education are also considered important. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sankt Petrograd. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 74.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Hibernian-Caledonian economy, worth 84.2 trillion rubbles a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Basket Weaving, Uranium Mining, and Automobile Manufacturing. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 124,491 rubbles, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 531,605 per year while the poor average 18,718, a ratio of 28.4 to 1.

Psychiatrists bizarrely accompany Leader to meetings with foreign heads of state, tour guides tell passengers that there is beautiful architecture just behind the two-hundred-foot concrete walls, builders across Hibernian-Caledonia are blocked up with orders for new public loos, and winceyette robes are a popular wedding gift. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Hibernian-Caledonia's national animal is the eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Hibernian-Caledonia is ranked 213,671st in the world and 29th in Official European Union for Rudest Citizens, with 21.3 Insults Per Minute.
