The Dogtatorship of Hoochlandia is a massive, orderly nation, remarkable for its complete lack of prisons, sprawling nuclear power plants, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 3.92 billion Hoochlandians 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 enormous, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Spirituality, Environment, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Barkampton. The average income tax rate is 88.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Hoochlandian economy, worth 566 trillion dogfoods a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Cheese Exports, Furniture Restoration, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 144,638 dogfoods, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Education for the poor is learning to ask "do you want fries with that?", politicians are often seen drinking soft drinks at the end of every public address, the nation refuses to provide international aid, and all footpaths have tollbooths. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force. Hoochlandia's national animal is the dog, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Hauhauism.

Hoochlandia is ranked 35,256th in the world and 157th in Forest for Highest Economic Output, with 566 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
