The People's Republic of Hopolieistan is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its daily referendums, state-planned economy, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed population of 671 million Hopolieistanians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bear City. The average income tax rate is 70.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Hopolieistanian economy, worth 76.3 trillion pounds a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Trout Farming. Average income is an impressive 113,727 pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Barbed wire entanglements and guard towers surround the Bear City Natural History Museum, films are funded in accordance with the volume of tears shed when reading the screenplay, funeral directors are frequently looking at their watches during funerals, and space shuttles regularly launch rubbish into space. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Hopolieistan's national animal is the Bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Hopolieistan is ranked 13,039th in the world and 239th in The Communist Bloc for Longest Average Lifespans, with 91 years.
