The Republic of Historybuffs is a huge, socially progressive nation, notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, compulsory military service, and devotion to social welfare. The democratic population of 414 million Historybuffsians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Alexandria. The average income tax rate is 48.5%.

The Historybuffsian economy, worth 20.6 trillion knowledges a year, is led by the Door-to-door Insurance Sales industry, with major contributions from Furniture Restoration, Basket Weaving, and Uranium Mining. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 49,790 knowledges, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.0 times as much as the poorest.

Ambulances aren't allowed to overtake hearses, daisy chain gangs plant flowers and pick up litter, murderers and thieves claim divine inspiration to avoid prosecution, and the armed forces are locked in an expensive and bloody war abroad to stamp out possible terrorists. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Historybuffs's national animal is the fox, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

Historybuffs is ranked 33,522nd in the world and 3rd in DO WHATEVER THE HELL YOU WANT for Most Primitive, scoring 57.29 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
