The Empire of Hibsboro is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Donavan Hibsbo with an even hand, and notable for its strictly enforced bedtime, aversion to nipples, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 1.84 billion Hibsborians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The tiny, corrupt, pro-business government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order, Industry, and Spirituality also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Welfare are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hibsboro Megalopolis. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 3.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Hibsborian economy, worth 294 trillion Antlers a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Uranium Mining, and Information Technology. Average income is an impressive 159,864 Antlers, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 489,190 per year while the poor average 40,463, a ratio of 12.1 to 1.

Most pop videos prominently feature the Hibsborian flag, Donavan Hibsbo claims to be the epitome of family values, state-sanctioned torture is okay so long as there's no icky blood, and the military sees national borders more as guidelines than absolutes. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Hibsboro's national animal is the Hedgehog, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Hibsboro is ranked 32,734th in the world and 1,816th in The North Pacific for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring 3,962.85 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
