Hippie Kiwis

LeaderKing William IV


The Grootrijk of Hippie Kiwis is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by King William IV with an iron fist, and notable for its ubiquitous missile silos, pith helmet sales, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 8.938 billion Kiwisians 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 large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Haven. The average income tax rate is 91.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Kiwisian economy, worth a remarkable 1,601 trillion Guilders a year, is quite specialized and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, Uranium Mining, and Cheese Exports. Average income is an impressive 179,192 Guilders, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.8 times as much as the poorest.

Those who investigate UFOs tend to wake up delirious on abandoned roads, Saturday morning cartoons feature full frontal nudity, a firework a day does not in fact keep the doctor away, and inheritance tax has recently been abolished. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Hippie Kiwis's national animal is the Ждун, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Islam.

Hippie Kiwis is ranked 163,473rd in the world and 27th in The White Stag Republic for Most Cultured, scoring 62 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
