The Republic of Hujen is a massive, orderly nation, notable for its rum-swilling pirates, state-planned economy, and disturbing lack of elderly people. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 2.366 billion Hujenians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The medium-sized, corrupt, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Industry. The average income tax rate is 44.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Hujenian economy, worth 142 trillion kronor a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, quite specialized black market in Woodchip Exports, Furniture Restoration, Pizza Delivery, and Retail. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 60,325 kronor, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

A new generation of aquariumless hotels are being built under government supervision, foreigners with shady pasts are fleeing the country, cotton candy made from genuine cotton cellulose doesn't quite satisfy, and there's sophisticated talk of revolution within the ever-expanding mining colonies. Crime, especially youth-related, is almost non-existent, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Hujen's national animal is the dove, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Hujen is ranked 98,890th in the world and 480th in Europeia for Nudest, with 133 Cheeks Per Square Mile.
