The Republic of Hiram Land is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Markus Alessey with an even hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, national health service, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 11.474 billion Hiram Landers have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Neuhyrama. The average income tax rate is 96.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Hiram Lander economy, worth a remarkable 2,037 trillion Drets a year, is highly specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 177,615 Drets, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.3 times as much as the poorest.

Monocled merchants with funny accents are applying for Hiram Lander citizenship in droves, Markus Alessey's family members carry literal get-out-of-jail-free cards, citizens are encouraged to report friends, family members or co-workers who seem depressed to the government for "counselling", and the government maintains a Department of Skulduggery. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Hiram Land's national animal is the Cow, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Hiram Land is ranked 19,209th in the world and 14th in United Forum of Nations for Highest Poor Incomes, with 80,609.4 Standard Monetary Units.
