Holy Horoist Imperium

The Holy Empire of Holy Horoist Imperium is a huge, orderly nation, notable for its ubiquitous missile silos, punitive income tax rates, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 325 million Horoistes are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Spirituality. The average income tax rate is 69.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Holy Horoist Imperiumian economy, worth 6.33 trillion Satoshis a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient black market in Arms Manufacturing, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, Basket Weaving, and Furniture Restoration. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 19,487 Satoshis, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Punk rockers smash it up and then clean it up, police officers that upset their bosses get assigned to 24 hour stakeouts of bike sheds, Jack Russells have proven to be terrible spies, and there's sophisticated talk of revolution within the ever-expanding mining colonies. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Holy Horoist Imperium's national animal is the Fox, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

Holy Horoist Imperium is ranked 140,574th in the world and 213th in Conch Kingdom for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring 32.61 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
