|Leader||President George Rowan|
The Republic of Hittanryan is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by President George Rowan with a fair hand, and notable for its compulsory military service, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 15.376 billion Adirans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.
The medium-sized, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Laconia. The average income tax rate is 84.4%.
The all-consuming Adiran economy, worth a remarkable 2,411 trillion Adiran Dollars a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 156,866 Adiran Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.2 times as much as the poorest.
The nation has opened its arms to an influx of refugees, construction of the Really Big Hadron Collider is underway, scenic mountain valleys are flooded with water as damming projects get underway, and Hittanryan has one of the largest offshore wind farms in the world. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Hittanryan's national animal is the Raccoon, which is also the nation's favorite main course.
