The Empire of Hotdog Bigfoot is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by The Holcomb Hairy Man with an even hand, and notable for its closed borders, unlimited-speed roads, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 3.155 billion Hotdog Bigfootians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of St Billyburg. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 23.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Hotdog Bigfootian economy, worth 462 trillion Greenbacks a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Retail, Information Technology, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 146,719 Greenbacks, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 660,239 per year while the poor average 20,114, a ratio of 32.8 to 1.

Where there's smoke there's the Hotdog Bigfootian Forestry Department, retirement homes are often fitted with luxurious suites, one can walk from one side of St Billyburg to the other without setting foot on Hotdog Bigfootian soil, and The Holcomb Hairy Man spends weekends doing the laundry of foreign leaders. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Hotdog Bigfoot's national animal is the Bigfoot, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Billydom.

Hotdog Bigfoot is ranked 132,161st in the world and 5,120th in the South Pacific for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring -3.02 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
