The Empire of Hippopotamus Amphibious is a massive, safe nation, notable for its public floggings, frequent executions, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 1.112 billion Hippopotamus Amphibiousians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The tiny government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Administration. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 8.8%.

The thriving Hippopotamus Amphibiousian economy, worth 82.4 trillion dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Door-to-door Insurance Sales, Woodchip Exports, and Book Publishing. Average income is 74,069 dollars, with the richest citizens earning 5.6 times as much as the poorest.

Citizens with artificial limbs are forbidden to serve as beauty pageant judges, military equipment stores have a tendency to go up in flames, troop transports blacken the sky as the military commences Operation Desert Ocean, and bike rage is all the rage. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Hippopotamus Amphibious's national animal is the Hippo, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

Hippopotamus Amphibious is ranked 211,869th in the world and 7,769th in Lazarus for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring -9.49 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
