The High-toned SOB of Hugo Boss is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Joseph Conrad with an iron fist, and remarkable for its rum-swilling pirates, strictly enforced bedtime, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 20.93 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 medium-sized, corrupt, pro-business, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Industry also on the agenda, while Welfare and Social Policy are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Castle Rock. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 80.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Hugo Bossian economy, worth a remarkable 4,720 trillion Golds a year, is quite specialized and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Retail, Gambling, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is an amazing 225,529 Golds, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,858,121 per year while the poor average 5,684, a ratio of 326 to 1.

The sound of wooden legs echo throughout Hugo Boss after the recent introduction of the Foot Tax, indigenous tribal elders can be recognised by their designer watches and expensive suits, the jackhammer is considered a tool of artistic criticism, and the Master Race is being overrun by the genetically-inferior. Crime is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. 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 214,864th in the world and 18th in BLITZKRIEG for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 603.12 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
