The Principality of Higara is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Hitler with an even hand, and notable for its aversion to nipples, smutty television, and state-planned economy. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 2.044 billion Higarans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Higara. The average income tax rate is 46.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Higaran economy, worth 366 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 179,253 Imperial Marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Birth rates have hit an all-time low, all the playground's a stage for Higaran schoolchildren, teen boys and girls find stick-figure-aided lectures on their comradestruation emphasises socialist unity more than biology, and research grant proposals read like political diatribes. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. 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 74,722nd in the world and 2nd in Earth One for Most Politically Free, scoring 68.19 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
