Overview Policies People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Empire of Hibsboro is a huge, efficient nation, ruled by Donavan Hibsbo with an even hand, and remarkable for its public floggings, strictly enforced bedtime, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 900 million 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 juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Spirituality. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hibsboro Megalopolis. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 2.9%.

The all-consuming Hibsborian economy, worth 135 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 150,338 Antlers, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 475,539 per year while the poor average 36,275, a ratio of 13.1 to 1.

The military recognizes no difference between male and female soldiers, blood stains the floors of the execution room and the hands of the state, a burger chain recently changed its name to Mack Donaldz for legal reasons, and for just a few extra Antlers Hibsborians can get new driving records with their new cars. 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 100,677th in the world and 5,751st in The North Pacific for Nudest, with 112.75 Cheeks Per Square Mile.
