The Empire of Hotdog Bigfoot is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by The Holcomb Hairy Man with an even hand, and notable for its frequent executions, sprawling nuclear power plants, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 2.986 billion Hotdog Bigfootians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of St Billyburg. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 23.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Hotdog Bigfootian economy, worth 437 trillion Greenbacks a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Retail, Information Technology, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 146,554 Greenbacks, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 646,450 per year while the poor average 20,820, a ratio of 31.0 to 1.

The recital of citations that follows any political speech can be longer than the speech itself, police officers that upset their bosses get assigned to 24 hour stakeouts of bike sheds, vital intelligence-gathering activities are put on hold as agents return home for seduction training and advanced poker instruction, and no one is worried about government policies any more. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Hotdog Bigfoot's national animal is the Bigfoot, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Billydom.

Hotdog Bigfoot is ranked 103,586th in the world and 4,197th in the South Pacific for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 225.49 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
