The Republic of Hujen is a gargantuan, cultured nation, notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, avant-garde cinema, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 10.126 billion Hujenians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized, corrupt, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. The average income tax rate is 68.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Hujenian economy, worth a remarkable 2,202 trillion kronor a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, fairly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Woodchip Exports, and Furniture Restoration. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 217,474 kronor, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Travelers often bring empty plastic bottles on Air Hujen flights to avoid the pay lavatories, neighbourhood gossips whip up controversy about those receiving adult merchandise, warm coats are the hottest trend, and mandatory spouse selection pairs elderly apparatchiki with stunningly beautiful supermodels. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Hujen's national animal is the dove, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Hujen is ranked 62,425th in the world and 284th in Europeia for Most Eco-Friendly Governments, scoring 1,338.21 on the Dolphin Recycling Awareness Index.
