The Free Land of The Hog Farmers is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Fred Ziffel with an even hand, and notable for its national health service, avowedly heterosexual populace, and triple-decker prams. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 9.624 billion Hog Farmers are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Spirituality. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hooterville. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 61.5%.

The powerhouse A Hog Farmer economy, worth 545 trillion Dollars a year, is quite specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Furniture Restoration, Basket Weaving, and Tourism. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 56,718 Dollars, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 319,399 per year while the poor average 4,966, a ratio of 64.3 to 1.

Hell is not always other people, raindances intended to summon storms instead attract tourists, running away is an essential part of the elite forces' hand-to-hand training, and the nation has gained millions of new citizens overnight. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Hog Farmers's national animal is the Dog, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Catholic.

The Hog Farmers is ranked 172,873rd in the world and 5,381st in Balder for Most Politically Free, scoring 40 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
