The Hoser Hut

Faitha major religion


The People's Republic of The Hoser Hut is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Leader with an iron fist, and remarkable for its public floggings, prohibition of alcohol, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 12.353 billion Hoser Hutians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The enormous, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Hoser Hut City. The average income tax rate is 71.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Hoser Hutian economy, worth 856 trillion Beers a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Automobile Manufacturing. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 69,320 Beers, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Art criticism in The Hoser Hut is scathingly destructive, kids' party bags often contain candy and e-cigarettes, half of the nation's import/export industry is run from a location known only as 'Dead Man's Cove', and animal control is going door-to-door releasing all pets back into the wild. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Hoser Hut's national animal is the Geese, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is a major religion.

The Hoser Hut is ranked 41,057th in the world and 191st in Artificial Solar System for Largest Governments, scoring 19.7 on the Bureaucratic Comprehensiveness Rating Scale Index.
