The Holy Thiefdom of Hrotsijka is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Maxim Gromyko with an iron fist, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 25.173 billion Hrotsijkans 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 prioritizes Defense, although Education, Healthcare, and Welfare are also considered important. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bryxoi. The average income tax rate is 95.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Hrotsijkan economy, worth a remarkable 3,419 trillion Aijks a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Soda Sales. Average income is an impressive 135,838 Aijks, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 510,538 per year while the poor average 25,230, a ratio of 20.2 to 1.

Protestors are soaking piles of Aijks in blood to make a point about government incomes, summer science camps are regularly raided by narcotics police, the government has certified several glow-in-the-dark athletes as drug free, and no one born in Hrotsijka can fix a leaky faucet. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Hrotsijka's national animal is the Hrotsijkan Ram, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Gromykoism.

Hrotsijka is ranked 165,264th in the world and 21st in Gatesville Inc for Most Primitive, scoring -214.49 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
