Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Empire of Hibsboro is a huge, efficient nation, notable for its complete lack of prisons, smutty television, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 552 million Hibsborians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The tiny, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Spirituality. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hibsboro Megalopolis. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 3.4%.

The all-consuming Hibsborian economy, worth 76.2 trillion Antlers a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is an impressive 138,013 Antlers, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 632,944 per year while the poor average 18,281, a ratio of 34.6 to 1.

Corporations donate huge sums of money to favored politicians, the judicial system legislates morality, royalist is the most offensive slur in the Hibsborian language, and pollution is on the rise along with government approvals of fracking projects. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force. Hibsboro's national animal is the Hedgehog, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Hibsboro is ranked 61,671st in the world and 2,020th in The North Pacific for Most Stationary, with 101.819552891 Days.
