The Confederacy of Hoosier Counties is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Ardes with an iron fist, and renowned for its unlimited-speed roads, public floggings, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 2.188 billion Hoosier Countiesians 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 government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Law & Order, Education, and Administration also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Welfare receive no funds. The average income tax rate is 15.2%.

The very strong Hoosier Countiesian economy, worth 141 trillion Hoosier Trade Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Automobile Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is notable. Average income is 64,624 Hoosier Trade Dollars, with the richest citizens earning 5.3 times as much as the poorest.

Hoosier Countiesians are regularly fired for looking at MyFace during their lunch breaks, a new religious movement claims that people's souls are stored in phosphorus, supermarket milk is a shear-thickening fluid that can stop small-caliber bullets, and the jackhammer is considered a tool of artistic criticism. Crime, especially youth-related, is almost non-existent, thanks to a capable police force. Hoosier Counties's national animal is the Rattle Snake, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Hoosier Counties is ranked 94,933rd in the world and 2,672nd in Balder for Most Stationary, with 42.060563359 Days.
