The Principality of Higara is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Hitler with an even hand, and renowned for its soft-spoken computers, anti-smoking policies, and daily referendums. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 3.275 billion Higarans 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 medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Higara. The average income tax rate is 66.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Higaran economy, worth 591 trillion Imperial Marks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, broadly diversified black market in Information Technology, Tourism, Retail, and Book Publishing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 180,642 Imperial Marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The "Dreadnowt" is the pride and joy of the Higaran Navy, blue sky thinkers are reminded that the firmament is actually more of a grey-ish colour, Hitler's Twitcher account is once again only used for bragging about the government's accomplishments, and the term cold case has taken on a very literal meaning. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Higara's national animal is the eagle, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Poggismo.

Higara is ranked 10,533rd in the world and 1st in Spanish Earth for Largest Black Market, with 93.8 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
