The Empire of Hileville is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Emperor Dennrick with an iron fist, and notable for its smutty television, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 17.008 billion Hilevilleans are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Education, Environment, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Spirituality is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nanlandia. The average income tax rate is 66.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Hilevillean economy, worth a remarkable 2,607 trillion Hiles a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Automobile Manufacturing. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 153,338 Hiles, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Adverts proclaim it has to be healthy if the Mornay uses hand-grated Gallopavian Gruyère, the nation's navy has been named the scourge of the seven thousand seas, Bigtopian relations have become a minefield, and a new guerrilla marketing campaign for tap water involves government agents spraying random citizens with hose water. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Hileville's national animal is the Lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is the Cult of the Lions.

Hileville is ranked 17,408th in the world and 945th in The North Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 78.08 on the Human Development Index.
