Overview Factbook Dispatches People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Empire of Hileville is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Emperor Dennrick Ravenclaw with an iron fist, and notable for its unlimited-speed roads, soft-spoken computers, and complete lack of prisons. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 12.063 billion Hilevilleans are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government is dominated by the Department of Defense, with Education and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Spirituality receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nanlandia. The average income tax rate is 58.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Hilevillean economy, worth a remarkable 1,846 trillion Hiles a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Automobile Manufacturing, and Information Technology. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 153,048 Hiles, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Marijuana is legal in the privacy of your own home, children as young as twelve are conscripted into the armed forces, citizens have never heard foreign radio, and children's toy tractors have been seized as state property. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Hileville's national animal is the Lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is the Cult of the Lions.

Hileville is ranked 2,067th in the world and 92nd in Balder for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring 12,423 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
