The High-toned SOB of Hugo Boss is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Joseph Conrad with an iron fist, and renowned for its prohibition of alcohol, keen interest in outer space, and zero percent divorce rate. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 16.646 billion Hugo Bossians are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The large, corrupt, pro-business, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Castle Rock. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 53.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Hugo Bossian economy, worth a remarkable 1,499 trillion $$s a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Woodchip Exports, and Automobile Manufacturing. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is 90,105 $$s, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 722,786 per year while the poor average 2,600, a ratio of 278 to 1.

Corporate innovation has effectively ended since ideas can no longer be owned, sanitary products are sold in brown paper at hairdressers' salons, meetings are often scheduled for "about four-ish" following complete conversion to sundials, and fortified nursing homes are wracked with daily skirmishes. Crime is pervasive. Hugo Boss's national animal is the ^-^, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Aubrey-Maturinism.

Hugo Boss is ranked 40,357th in the world and 9th in BLITZKRIEG for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring 3,775.42 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
