The Colony of Hovit is a huge, safe nation, notable for its public floggings and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, hard-working population of 537 million Hovitians 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 tiny government prioritizes Welfare, with Healthcare, Education, and Law & Order also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Industry receive no funds. The average income tax rate is 8.3%.

The sizeable but inefficient Hovitian economy, worth 27.2 trillion dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Basket Weaving industry, with major contributions from Furniture Restoration, Tourism, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 50,690 dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.2 times as much as the poorest.

People caught mistreating Hovit's flag generally wind up in a great deal of pain, citizens are barcoded to keep track of their movements, the acceptance of acupuncture and other alternative therapies has needled the scientific community, and the dartboard at the Hovitian Cancer Research Charity bears a picture of Leader's face. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Hovit's national animal is the Panther.

Hovit is ranked 36,086th in the world and 1st in The new united federations for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring 105.5 on the Hayek Index.
