Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Holy Thiefdom of Hrotsijka is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Maxim Gromyko with an iron fist, and renowned for its pith helmet sales, public floggings, and anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 23.801 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, with Education, Healthcare, and Welfare also on the agenda. 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 3,233 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 171,892nd in the world and 26th in Gatesville Inc for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring -17.15 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
