The Dictatorship of HippieVillage2 is a small, efficient nation, notable for its compulsory military service, frequent executions, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 26 million Cultists are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The relatively small, moralistic, pro-business, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Healthcare. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 8.1%.

The very strong Sixth House economy, worth 1.79 trillion Coins a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Door-to-door Insurance Sales, Pizza Delivery, and Trout Farming. Average income is 68,703 Coins, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 460,780 per year while the poor average 3,845, a ratio of 119 to 1.

Dangerous criminals are often 'accidentally' sent on one-way trips to Maxtopia, ghost regiments exist only on paper, raindances intended to summon storms instead attract tourists, and Jack Russells have proven to be terrible spies. Crime is moderate, possibly because it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many regulations. HippieVillage2's national animal is the Bear, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

HippieVillage2 is ranked 141,493rd in the world and 338th in The Invaders for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 48.52 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
