The Holy Empire of Histarctica is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Emperor Conrad II with an iron fist, and renowned for its frequent executions, keen interest in outer space, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 2.264 billion Histarcticans are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Entioch. The average income tax rate is 45.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Histarctican economy, worth 224 trillion Imperial Kroner a year, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 99,093 Imperial Kroner, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Citizens are deployed to barren deserts to protect small territorial claims, the richest individuals apparently buy nothing but noodles and toilet paper, scientific journals publish third-graders' school essays, and the act of reporting blasphemy is known as 'Orthodoxxing'. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Histarctica's national animal is the wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Church of Light.

Histarctica is ranked 27,666th in the world and 5th in Imperial Sanctuary for Most Conservative, scoring 80.58 on the Bush-Santorum Dawning Terror Index.
