Overview Factbook Dispatches People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Empire of Hileville is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Emperor Dennrick Ravenclaw with an iron fist, and remarkable for its strictly enforced bedtime, compulsory military service, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 12.602 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 isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nanlandia. The average income tax rate is 58.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Hilevillean economy, worth a remarkable 1,932 trillion Hiles a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Automobile Manufacturing. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 153,338 Hiles, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Children's toy tractors have been seized as state property, dining out often involves Lions on the plate no matter what you order, virtually all of the country's economic activity takes place in Nanlandia, and genocide is seen as a topic best avoided in history lessons. 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 9,937th in the world and 421st in Balder for Most Devout, with 1,903.76 Prayers Per Hour.
