The Dominion of Hieroglyphs is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its state-planned economy, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The democratic population of 389 million Hieroglyphsians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 71.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Hieroglyphsian economy, worth 3.86 trillion Scarabs a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Beef-Based Agriculture industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. Average income is 9,919 Scarabs, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Scientists regularly clone human beings for research purposes, organ donation rates are among the lowest in the region, surveillance cameras are banned, and both diets and economic output are growing leaner with recent restrictions to free trade. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Hieroglyphs's national animal is the Scarab, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Hieroglyphs is ranked 60,820th in the world and 1,622nd in Osiris for Least Corrupt Governments, with 93.7 percentage of bribes refused.
