The Federal Republic of Horspon is a huge, efficient nation, remarkable for its enslaved workforce, frequent executions, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 643 million Horsponites 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 prioritizes Defense, although Healthcare, Law & Order, and Industry are also considered important, while Spirituality receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of NicCagesville. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 43.5%.

The powerhouse Horsponite economy, worth 68.3 trillion Kikonis a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Basket Weaving, Automobile Manufacturing, and Pizza Delivery. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an impressive 106,148 Kikonis, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 406,122 per year while the poor average 19,162, a ratio of 21.2 to 1.

On graduation day the hats thrown in the air fly high enough to stun passing pigeons, the government struggles to keep up with the endless list of petrol disasters, fancy dress parties are raided by military police for new recruits, and the constant playing of Merry Birthday on Horsponite radio has led to calls for the song to be classified as a crime against humanity. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Horspon's national animal is the moo cow, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Horspon is ranked 75,235th in the world and 411th in Europeia for Most Average, scoring 40.94 on the Average Standardized Normality Scale.
