LeaderPresident Yelm


The Republic of Hunem is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by President Yelm with an iron fist, and remarkable for its deadly medical pandemics, compulsory military service, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 5.951 billion Huns are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The relatively small, corrupt, moralistic, pro-business, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order and Industry are also considered important, while Environment and Welfare receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Intermarium. The average income tax rate is 21.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Hunnic economy, worth a remarkable 1,436 trillion dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 241,414 dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.8 times as much as the poorest.

Fat-shaming is now public policy, military doctrine says not to open fire until you see the "beady little eyes" of Johnny Foreigner, war criminals are given full state funerals, and taking a walk on the wild side is punishable by death. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force. Hunem's national animal is the eagle, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Hunem is ranked 2,321st in the world and 28th in Confederation of Corrupt Dictators for Largest Mining Sector, scoring 17,690.02 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
