The Supremely Democratic States of Hirota is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Kan Pae Down with a fair hand, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, smutty television, and unlimited-speed roads. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 36.999 billion Hirotans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The minute government, or what there is of one, prioritizes Defense, although Education and Healthcare are also considered important, while Spirituality and Environment aren't funded at all. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Hirotan economy, worth a remarkable 6,804 trillion coins a year, is led by the Uranium Mining industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Retail. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 183,901 coins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Teenage male videogamers often suffer repetitive strain wrist injuries, adverts proclaim it has to be healthy if the Mornay uses hand-grated Gallopavian Gruyère, a faint smell of body odour can be detected at several miles' distance from the National Science Park, and a death threat has replaced 'hello' as an official greeting in the nation. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. Hirota's national animal is the forest owl, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Hirota is ranked 45,177th in the world and 225th in Europe for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 72.52 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
