The Republic of Hoovy is a small, safe nation, notable for its state-planned economy, irreverence towards religion, and stringent health and safety legislation. The democratic population of 20 million Hoovyians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 22.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The weak Hoovyian economy, worth 647 billion dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Basket Weaving industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Trout Farming. Average income is 32,360 dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Hoovy's national animal is the Pootis Bird.

Hoovy is ranked 158,496th in the world and 6,942nd in the South Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 42.43 on the Human Development Index.
