The Sidoneian Tabasco Stockpile of Professor Hotsauce is a massive, cultured nation, renowned for its pith helmet sales, rampant corporate plagiarism, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 2.035 billion Professor Hotsauceans are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The medium-sized, corrupt, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Avery Island. The average income tax rate is 67.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Professor Hotsaucean economy, worth 257 trillion Scovilles 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 a large, well-organized black market in Information Technology, Uranium Mining, Arms Manufacturing, and Soda Sales. 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 impressive 126,664 Scovilles, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Some are born loving old plays and some have old plays thrust upon them, dinner parties often end in politically charged fist fights, the environment is gorgeous so long as you're looking up, and the nation's official head of religious affairs is an atheist. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Professor Hotsauce's national animal is the Rooster, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Professor Hotsauce is ranked 160,267th in the world and 46th in Slavija for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 122.32 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
