The United Socialist States of Hipsian is a huge, safe nation, notable for its soft-spoken computers, hatred of cheese, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate population of 755 million Hipsianians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.
The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 78.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The sizeable but underdeveloped Hipsianian economy, worth 35.9 trillion rubles a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Trout Farming. Average income is 47,579 rubles, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Citizens live in superstitious fear of the mysterious glowing clouds that float over Hipsian, state media features lively debates such as whether pineapple on pizza is an acceptable topping, students are wary of colorfully decorated new teachers with names like Professor Pipsqueak, and tourists need only sign on the dotted line to become citizens. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Hipsian's national animal is the donkey, which is also the nation's favorite main course.
