The United Socialist States of Hircea is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its museums and concert halls, keen interest in outer space, and state-planned economy. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 596 million Hirceans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Felingrad. The average income tax rate is 75.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Hircean economy, worth 63.8 trillion Hircs a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an impressive 106,977 Hircs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Saturday morning cartoons feature full frontal nudity, arthritic surgeons with tremulous fingers reassure patients that they are in safe hands, government officials sit helplessly as they are labelled 'Pompous Womples' by celebrities, and the countryside is shrouded by wind farms. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Hircea's national animal is the Emu, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Hircea is ranked 145,742nd in the world and 7,424th in The North Pacific for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -9.43 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
