The Holy Empire of Headcrabians is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Nyarlathotep with an iron fist, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, frequent executions, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 13.257 billion Headcrabiansians are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The tiny, corrupt, moralistic, pro-business, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mega Therion. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Headcrabiansian economy, worth a remarkable 5,212 trillion corpses a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an amazing 393,194 corpses, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 3,672,957 per year while the poor average 3,662, a ratio of 1,002 to 1.

Bands of paramedics walk the streets looking for suspicious medical activity, concussed humanball players cannot remember their lineup position, armoured pyjamas are in fashion amongst the nation's nobility, and the nation's new Mylab space station is notorious for being the loneliest place above the planet. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force. Headcrabians's national animal is the human, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Forceful fornication with feti.

Headcrabians is ranked 2,560th in the world and 100th in Osiris for Rudest Citizens, with 197.11 Insults Per Minute.
