The Free Provinces of Hickssylvania is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Prime Minister Jack Moss with a fair hand, and renowned for its enslaved workforce, national health service, and ubiquitous missile silos. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 28.297 billion Hickssylvanians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Industry, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Troy. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 23.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Hickssylvanian economy, worth a remarkable 3,878 trillion Dollars a year, is highly specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 137,049 Dollars, with the richest citizens earning 6.0 times as much as the poorest.

Cassocked priests and choirboys believe that what happens behind closed doors stays behind closed doors, more and more people are signing up for the government party, racial and religious segregation has become rife as the various groups are loath to mingle, and traffic jams are a common sight due to construction work from a massive overhaul of the nation's freeways. Crime is relatively low. Hickssylvania's national animal is the raven, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Hickssylvania is ranked 214,440th in the world and 6,885th in Osiris for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -37.93 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
