The Federation of Hicksonia is a huge, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 276 million Hicksonians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 66.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Hicksonian economy, worth 13.9 trillion Zelis a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 50,458 Zelis, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Hicksonia has designated Hicksonia City as its capital city, the nation's diplomats shake hands with those whose hands are drenched in the blood of innocents, people can't decide between preserving forests and buying print copies of 'Dogman Versus The Giggler', and administrative districts are increasingly defined by their taste in housing architecture. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Hicksonia's national animal is the Ocelot, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Hicksonia is ranked 46,656th in the world and 1,528th in the South Pacific for Highest Poor Incomes, with 37,990.25 Standard Monetary Units.
