The Supremely Democratic States of Hirota is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Kan Pae Down with a fair hand, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, ubiquitous missile silos, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 32.596 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, is effectively ruled by the Department of Defense, with Education also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Environment receive no funds. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Hirotan economy, worth a remarkable 6,173 trillion coins a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is fairly diversified and led by the Uranium Mining industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 189,391 coins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Large sections of Hirota have been named national reserves to protect the native tribes living there, the government has been criticized for giving away Hirota's territory to anyone who claims it, the automobile industry is sitting up and taking notice of the new 24 hour race events... as are the track's sleepless neighbours, and most ambassadors from Hirota retire only a few years after being appointed. 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 4,699th in the world and 65th in Europe for Highest Workforce Participation Rate, with 80.6 Workforce Participation Rate.
