The Allied States of Hiowatha is a tiny, safe nation, renowned for its state-planned economy, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The democratic, devout population of 14 million Hiowathans are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Spirituality. The average income tax rate is 64.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The struggling Hiowathan economy, worth 221 billion Tayens 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 Door-to-door Insurance Sales industry, with major contributions from Furniture Restoration, Information Technology, and Uranium Mining. Average income is 15,840 Tayens, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Voting is voluntary, the Hawk is a protected species, the Supreme Court vehemently protects civil rights and the right to privacy, and bris parties are all the rage. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Hiowatha's national animal is the Hawk, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Hiowatha is ranked 149,511th in the world and 17th in Aurora Union for Highest Economic Output, with 222 billion Standard Monetary Units.
