The Supremely Democratic States of Hirota is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Kan Pae Down with a fair hand, and remarkable for its smutty television, flagrant waste-dumping, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 35.849 billion Hirotans enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The minute government, or what there is of one, is primarily concerned with Defense, although Education and Healthcare are also considered important, while Spirituality and Environment are ignored. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Hirotan economy, worth a remarkable 6,816 trillion coins a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Uranium Mining industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Retail. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 190,149 coins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Depression sinks in after each election when voters realize they are stuck with these people for years, citizens who don't follow a major religion are closely monitored for signs of self-harm, having skeletons in one's closet is no longer just a macabre idiom, and reporters who negatively comment on politicians' haircuts are cut from the news. 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 7,279th in the world and 114th in Europe for Highest Average Incomes, with 190,149.7 Standard Monetary Units.
