The Invader of New HPC is a massive, orderly nation, remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The cynical, devout population of 4.39 billion Invaders 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, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Welfare, and Law & Order. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 65.9%.

The large but inefficient New HPCian economy, worth 207 trillion Invader coins a year, is quite specialized and led by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 47,307 Invader coins, with the richest citizens earning 8.1 times as much as the poorest.

Buses are widely regarded as the safest way to travel, the upper class have been throwing riots after hunting was recently banned, high school boys are required to pass vigorous self-mastery and sensitivity training to graduate, and international trade can be a pain to deal with. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. New HPC's national animal is the Invader eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

New HPC is ranked 34,501st in the world and 14th in Whitelist for Most Advanced Public Transport, scoring 1,612.43 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
