The Opossocracy of Hillbillica is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by High Fiddler Obadiah with a fair hand, and notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 3.278 billion Hillbillies live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The minute, corrupt, liberal, pro-business, outspoken government, or what there is of one, is solely concerned with Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Stalebelly Gulch. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Hillbillican economy, worth 566 trillion pelts a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is fairly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Gambling, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an impressive 172,755 pelts, with the richest citizens earning 5.7 times as much as the poorest.

'Police Academy 36' and 'Sharknados On A Plane' are vying for top spot at the box-office, police struggle to solve crimes due to the lack of fingerprint records, major polluting industries have painted a lot of their machines green to give an impression of caring about the environment, and the nation leads Realm of the Whispering Winds in per capita stalking. Crime, especially youth-related, is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Hillbillica's national animal is the opossum, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Heathenism.

Hillbillica is ranked 224,857th in the world and 110th in Realm of the Whispering Winds for Largest Governments, scoring 2.45 on the Bureaucratic Comprehensiveness Rating Scale Index.
