The Opossocracy of Hillbillica is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by High Fiddler Obadiah with a fair hand, and notable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, free-roaming dinosaurs, and unlimited-speed roads. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 2.954 billion Hillbillies live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The minute, corrupt, liberal, pro-business, outspoken government, or what there is of one, is solely concerned with Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Stalebelly Gulch. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Hillbillican economy, worth 517 trillion pelts a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is fairly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Gambling, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an impressive 175,211 pelts, with the richest citizens earning 6.1 times as much as the poorest.

Weather reports simply advise Hillbillies to 'look outside', a shout of "stop in the name of the law!" is more of a request than an order, racial and religious segregation has become rife as the various groups are loath to mingle, and the country's population is reported with a margin of error of several billions. Crime, especially youth-related, is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Hillbillica's national animal is the opossum, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Heathenism.

Hillbillica is ranked 197,933rd in the world and 108th in Realm of the Whispering Winds for Most Advanced Defense Forces, scoring -6.32 on the Total War Preparedness Rating.
