The Benevolent Autocratic Empire of Stick Huts is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by General Spank with an even hand, and notable for its national health service, frequent executions, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 5.805 billion Stick Hutsians are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Iron Citadel. The average income tax rate is 94.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Stick Hutsian economy, worth a remarkable 1,323 trillion wanks a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 227,978 wanks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The sound of wooden legs echo throughout Stick Huts after the recent introduction of the Foot Tax, punitive tariffs protect local industry, the nation's infamous boot camp is more brutal than most battlefields, and it is universally agreed that the first 31 issues are the only ones with humor and charm (Stick Huts has found 2 easter eggs). Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Stick Huts's national animal is the Puffin, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Stick Huts is ranked 3,233rd in the world and 129th in Balder for Most Developed, scoring 94.66 on the Human Development Index.
