Stud Hoy

The Empire of Stud Hoy is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Hidden One with an even hand, and renowned for its rampant corporate plagiarism, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 2.515 billion Stud Hoyians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Imperial Hoy City. The average income tax rate is 88.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Stud Hoyian economy, worth 459 trillion dollars a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 182,668 dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

It takes months to get the proper permits for a child's first tricycle, hundreds of subterranean tunnels are being built as part of "Project Morlock", pristine wilderness has been trashed in the quest for cheaper oil, and Hidden One's media campaigns take a hiatus around exam week. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Stud Hoy's national animal is the lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Stud Hoy is ranked 165,817th in the world and 8,374th in The North Pacific for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 2.68 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
