The Republic of Horsley Land is a small, genial nation, notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 23 million Horsley Landians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Welfare, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 25.6%.

The very strong Horsley Landian economy, worth 1.42 trillion free dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Door-to-door Insurance Sales, Automobile Manufacturing, and Uranium Mining. Average income is 61,582 free dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.2 times as much as the poorest.

Elite teams of assassins have been sent into Brasilistan, the armed forces have designated 'murder teams' that root out rebels in Brasilistan, captured Brasilistani POWs are staying in 5-star hotels, and homeowners on prime real estate have been seen dodging giant bulldozers with cartoon characters painted on them. Crime is almost non-existent. Horsley Land's national animal is the ram, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Horsley Land is ranked 46,279th in the world and 2,001st in The North Pacific for Most Advanced Defense Forces, scoring 2,515.85 on the Total War Preparedness Rating.
