The Empire of Hitrhostan is a huge, genial nation, ruled by Masamune Kido with an even hand, and renowned for its prohibition of alcohol, keen interest in outer space, and ubiquitous missile silos. The quiet, industrious population of 929 million Hitrhos are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large government prioritizes Education, although Law & Order, Healthcare, and Administration are also considered important, while Spirituality receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mikado City. The average income tax rate is 67.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Hitrho economy, worth 65.0 trillion alektors a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Trout Farming, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is 69,981 alektors, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Passwords to nuclear codes must now contain upper and lower case characters, marijuana is legal in the privacy of your own home, bike rage is all the rage, and Masamune Kido has just been declared ruler of Hitrhostan in an international press conference. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Hitrhostan's national animal is the peregrine falcon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Hitrhostan is ranked 175,867th in the world and 1,949th in 10000 Islands for Most Extreme, scoring 8.32 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
