Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Military Dictatorship of Higsantium is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Emperor Higs with an iron fist, and remarkable for its pith helmet sales, unlimited-speed roads, and enslaved workforce. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 21.341 billion Higsantiumians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The relatively small, corrupt, well-organized government is effectively ruled by the Department of Defense, although Healthcare and Industry are also considered important, while Social Policy and Welfare receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Higsantium City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 82.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Higsantiumian economy, worth an astonishing 10,340 trillion higs a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 484,554 higs, with the richest citizens earning 5.6 times as much as the poorest.

The nation's leading climatologists are investigating animal flatulence in efforts to reduce methane emissions, the nation's government buildings are remarkable for being ugly concrete boxes, criminals and college students are taking an interest in the government's new weed-killing program, and no one believes anything until it has been strenuously tested and peer-reviewed. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. Higsantium's national animal is the vorpal bunny, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is The Cult of Higs.

Higsantium is ranked 123,008th in the world and 132nd in Canada for Most Stationary, with 15.8641912358 Days.
