Federal Republic of Hetacia

The Bing Bong of Federal Republic of Hetacia is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Bridgeport Director's Office with a fair hand, and renowned for its otherworldly petting zoo, compulsory military service, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 1.435 billion Hetacians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bridgeport. The average income tax rate is 71.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Federal Republic of Hetacian economy, worth 203 trillion ƣλɯᴝꝛꝼs a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 141,607 ƣλɯᴝꝛꝼs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Burnt-out forty-foot-tall wicker men dot the countryside, party leaders rely on horoscopes to create "ticket balance", the restriction that you must be over 1.1 metres tall to ride a carnotaurus has recently been waived, and unwary hikers climbing the bluffs of Mount Bridgeport make great practice for foreign snipers. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Federal Republic of Hetacia's national animal is the Albatross, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Secular State.

Federal Republic of Hetacia is ranked 36,855th in the world and 1,482nd in The East Pacific for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 4,373.82 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
