The Empire of Hibsboro is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Donavan Hibsbo with an even hand, and renowned for its parental licensing program, frequent executions, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 1.473 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 aren't funded at all. 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 233 trillion Antlers a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Retail, Uranium Mining, and Information Technology. Average income is an impressive 158,210 Antlers, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 479,197 per year while the poor average 40,634, a ratio of 11.8 to 1.

The "blue screen of death" forces many trials to be either aborted or restarted, large areas of Hibsboro are not accessible by the public, on-call doctors who check their pagers during movies are banned from cinemas for life, and long-wed spouses often regret proposals they made when they were twenty. 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 78,461st in the world and 4,172nd in The North Pacific for Most Average, scoring 38.93 on the Average Standardized Normality Scale.
