The People's Republic of Hienza-yne is a huge, cultured nation, ruled by Naizenyo-len Zăntlaimezareno with an iron fist, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, otherworldly petting zoo, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 937 million Hienzans 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 juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Zajaito-yaon. The average income tax rate is 66.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Hienzan economy, worth 101 trillion Merzeses a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is an impressive 108,226 Merzeses, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Naizenyo-len Zăntlaimezareno's exquisite office door is replaced monthly due to angry petitioners, the judicial branch is strongly influenced by the Communist Party, the nation's new foreign policy of 'very disproportionate retribution' has its neighbors on edge, and signatures have been replaced with illegible scribbles. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Hienza-yne's national animal is the Jananra, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Hienza-yne is ranked 17,098th in the world and 10th in Antarctica for Most Subsidized Industry, scoring 6,040.62 on the Gilded Widget Scale.
