The Federation of Hickssylvania is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Prime Minister Jack Moss with a fair hand, and renowned for its sprawling nuclear power plants, keen interest in outer space, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 31.227 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, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Troy. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 32.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Hickssylvanian economy, worth a remarkable 4,620 trillion dollars a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 147,959 dollars, with the richest citizens earning 6.9 times as much as the poorest.

Hordes of tourists are ruining the environment, defense lawyers suggestively note to juries how flagrantly happy victims were, loan operators are losing interest due to lost interest, and national park visitors are reporting a rash of poison ivy sightings. Crime is relatively low. Hickssylvania's national animal is the elk, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Hickssylvania is ranked 7,977th in the world and 419th in Osiris for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 448.21 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
