The Armed Republic of Hicuria is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by President Mikael Von Hikuria IV with an even hand, and notable for its smutty television, unlimited-speed roads, and daily referendums. The compassionate population of 1.323 billion Hicurians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lakarri. The average income tax rate is 74.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Hicurian economy, worth 192 trillion dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 145,346 dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Blind dates tend to result in bruised shins, school children are expected to know the names of all seven hundred native tribes and their cultural practices, soldiers must key in their passwords every time they want to reload their weapons, and the nation gives peace a chance - usually one in a million. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Hicuria's national animal is the Sparrow, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Hikuria Cristanitia.

Hicuria is ranked 10,286th in the world and 185th in 10000 Islands for Healthiest Citizens, with 14.65 bananas ingested per day.
