The Theocracy of Hirzan is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its ritual sacrifices, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 238 million Hirzians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Spirituality, Law & Order, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 56.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Hirzian economy, worth 2.09 trillion Hirzian Lerins a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, highly specialized black market in Trout Farming, Furniture Restoration, and Soda Sales. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 8,783 Hirzian Lerins, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Customs turn away those considered to have an unfavourable ethnicity, the nation is constantly threatened with invasion but at least homosexuality in the military isn't a problem, politicians cheer the nation's surging death rate, and military instructors tire of being asked for another bedtime story by seven-year-old conscripts. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Hirzan's national animal is the Werewolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Hirzan is ranked 41,626th in the world and 2,057th in The North Pacific for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with 1,110.54 Tourists Per Hour.
