|Leader||Kan Pae Down|
The Supremely Democratic States of Hirota is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Kan Pae Down with a fair hand, and renowned for its compulsory military service, daily referendums, and rampant corporate plagiarism. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 36.264 billion Hirotans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.
The minute government, or what there is of one, is primarily concerned with Defense, although Education and Healthcare are also considered important, while Spirituality and Environment aren't funded at all. Income tax is unheard of.
The frighteningly efficient Hirotan economy, worth a remarkable 6,768 trillion coins a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Uranium Mining industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Retail. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 186,653 coins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Having skeletons in one's closet is no longer just a macabre idiom, reporters who negatively comment on politicians' haircuts are cut from the news, arbitrary election rules are considered sacrosanct, and teenage male videogamers often suffer repetitive strain wrist injuries. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. Hirota's national animal is the forest owl, which is also the nation's favorite main course.
