The Holy Socialist Sealord State of Huben is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Supreme Grand Admiral Otto Vogel with an even hand, and notable for its pith helmet sales, parental licensing program, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, devout population of 2.574 billion Hubenese are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The large, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Amstelia. The average income tax rate is 92.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Hubenian economy, worth 432 trillion Zoiches a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 167,995 Zoiches, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Voting is voluntary, peace talks occasionally rack up a higher body count than the wars they seek to stop, citizens live in superstitious fear of the mysterious glowing clouds that float over Huben, and the government has legalised small-scale capitalism. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Huben's national animal is the Golden Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Vedulism.

Huben is ranked 3,446th in the world and 1st in KAISERREICH for Nicest Citizens, with 51.08 average smiles per day.
